Peterhead are set to offer defender Tom Lang a contract until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old Stranraer centre-back, pictured, has been training with the Blue Toon for the last two weeks.
The Buchan side’s manager Jim McInally has been impressed by Lang during those training sessions and is hoping to sign him when the transfer window opens in January.
Peterhead have been looking for cover in defence because left-back Mikael Ngango Diboko will be leaving Balmoor when his contract expires in January and McInally wants Lang to bolster his defensive options as they chase the League Two title this season.
Although Lang is under contract with Stranraer until the end of this season, Peterhead are hopeful that a deal can be done in January to bring him to the club.
McInally said: “Tom has shown a great attitude in training.”
McInally favours signing someone like Lang on a permanent deal until the end of the season rather than bringing in a player on-loan who could be recalled.
Lang began his career in England in the youth academy at Birmingham City.
After leaving the English Championship club in 2015 he spent a season with Rangers Under-20s.
He departed Ibrox in the summer of 2016 and was a free agent until the beginning of this year when Dumbarton signed him.
The former Scotland U17 international left the Sons in the summer and joined Stranraer but his chances have been limited at Stair Park.
Lang’s desire to develop and be more involved in first-team action has led to him training with the Blue Toon.
