Unirea Want Jim McAlister

Morton's recent friendly opponents Unirea Urziceni were so impressed by Jim McAlister in Monday night's match that they are now trying to sign him.

According to today's Scottish Sun the Unirea manager, Dan Petrescu, approached Jim - who set up our only goal in the match when he went on a mazy run down the left and cut back for Stevie Masterton to drill home - in the the Morton dressing room right after the match to tell him he wanted to sign him.

Petrescu told The Sun's Gareth Law about his interest in the Ton winger: "I'm very interested in the player and he's exactly what I need in my midfield.

"I've spoken to the Morton chairman about him and now I'm waiting to see if we can start official talks for the transfer.

"We must also wait to hear if the player wants to come over to Romania to play in the Champions League."

The article goes onto say that Petrescu is trying to arrange it so that McAlister can play in a bounce match versus Plymouth Argyle in Glasgow tonight.
