Dumbarton are set to sign Ross County youngster Greg Morrison on loan.

According to the Press and Journal the 19-year-old was wanted by a number of Championship clubs, with ICT being the front runners.

But the striker, who has made seven appearances for the senior side, looks close to joining Sons, and will add some much needed firepower up front.

Speaking to the P+J, Aitken said: "Greg scored more than 20 goals to help his club win the SPFL Development League title last season and he now needs first team football to develop him further.

"When I found out he was still available I made contact with manager Jim McIntyre to tell him what Dumbarton could do for Greg.

"Jim agreed that he could come here and he will join us after the cup ties are all out of the way at the weekend."
