Dundee have made a loan bid to sign out-of-favour Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths.

The 31-year-old is yet to feature in a competitive match this season under manager Ange Postecoglou - despite signing a new one-year contract at Parkhead in July.

Griffiths made 47 appearances for the Dens Park club during a two-year spell between 2009 and 2011 - scoring 21 goals.
