    A number of reports have emerged that suggest MK Dons boss Russell Martin is keen to bring veteran midfielder Graham Dorrans to the club this month.

    The Dons have seen their fortunes turn in recent weeks, with Martin helping to orchestrate a revival that has seen the club climb out of the relegation zone, winning three and losing just one of their past six matches in the Sky Bet League One.

    Now that results have started to improve, Martin has an important month ahead and will understandably be eager to make some new additions to the squad to help keep them moving in the right direction.

    While there have been a number of rumours and transfer speculation in recent days, the one that continues to persist in Martin's supposed interest in former Scotland international, Graham Dorrans.

    If he were to join the Dons, he would bring with him a wealth of experience, with 134 appearances in the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City contributing to his 347 total league appearances in professional football.

    Dorrans, a 32-year-old central midfielder, is no stranger to Martin, who played alongside him during his time with Norwich City, where the pair played a part in the Canaries' promotion-winning Championship campaign in 2014/15.

    After leaving Norwich in 2017, the Glasgow native joined Scottish giants Rangers but had a torrid time with injuries seeing him make just 23 appearances in all competitions over the next two seasons.

    He joined Dundee towards the end of September and has been in fine form for the Scottish Championship side, scoring a goal and proving a further four assists in 15 appearances to date.

    His experience, leadership and international reputation have all unsurprisingly seen him reportedly attract the interest of the Dons. Despite Dundee boss James McPake recently stating his belief that Dorrans will remain north of the border, the rumour of his potential departure has not slowed down.

    While there are still a few weeks to go in the first transfer window of the decade, this could be an interesting storyline to follow until there is a final decision one way or the other.
