Dunfermline eye loan move for Hibs midfielder Fraser Murray

Last updated : 12 August 2020 By Steve Forbes

According to The Courier, Dunfermline Athletic are eyeing a loan move for Hibs midfielder Fraser Murray.

The Pars have already done some good business with the Hibees this summer, with freed Steven Whittaker joining the Fife club after departing Easter Road, and the Hibees also buying hitman Kevin Nisbet in a £250,000 deal.

It now seems Dunfermline boss Stevie Crawford is keen to bring attacking midfielder Murray to East End Park.

The youngster has only made fleeting appearances in the green and white, and Jack Ross is keen to send him out on loan to gain some much needed experience.

Murray already has the likes of Scott Allan, Stevie Mallan, Alex Gogic, Melker Hallberg and Joe Newell in front of him, and the Hibees are in talks to sign Rangers midfielder Ross McCrorie in a £200,000 deal, meaning chances, once again, will be limited.

Fraser has mad 29 appearances and scored 4 goals for the Hibees.

This would be a good move for young Fraser.

It would be his first loan away from Easter Road, and gaining some first team experience would do him the world of good.

He has a load of potential, but may struggle for games at ER this season.

It would also free-up a wage for Jack Ross to use, on maybe a loan deal to bolster his squad.
