League One rivals Sunderland were also rumoured to be interested in the man who bagged 34 goals from 41 appearances for Ayr United in the Scottish Championship last term.

But according to The Courier, Robbie Neilson’s Dundee have agreed terms with the 23-year-old and the deal is subject to a medical.

Jackett has bolstered his striking options by signing Ellis Harrison from Ipswich for an undisclosed fee – believed to be around £450,000.
