Grady Wants JJ

Morton boss James Grady has made an approach to sign former Rangers and Charlton striker Jonatan Johansson.

Grady has previously stated that he wants to sign a striker as a priority, and it would appear that Johansson is the man he's after. "He was playing SPL football this season and I spoke to Derek McInnes about him. In terms of how close we are getting, it could be a week or two, or it might not happen," Grady told the Greenock Telegraph's Martin Greig. "But I have spoken to him and remain hopeful. We are working hard on a few things, but we are not close enough on them to say they are definitely going to happen."

The Sweden-born Finland internationalist - who scored against Germany as recently as October last year - is without a club after St. Johnstone manager Derek McInnes decided not to extend his short-term contract with the Perth club.

Queen Of The South are also thought to be interested in the 34-year-old. And, although Grady remains uncertain as to whether Johansson will sign or not, the fact his wife, television presenter Jean Anderson, is from Port Glasgow and they have a house in Skelmorlie might swing his decision in Morton's favour.
