Rangers manager Mark Warburton is hopeful of completing a deal to sign Leicester City forward Joe Dodoo.
Meanwhile, Rangers midfielder Tom Walsh, 20, has joined St Mirren on loan until January.
A club record fee Burton Albion agreed to pay Ross County for midfielder Jackson Irvine is believed to be £300,000.
Championship club Norwich City have emerged as the favourites to sign Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern, who is out of contract after two years at Hamilton Academical.
Accies have bolstered their midfield options with the signing of Italian Massimo Donati, who previously played in Scotland with Celtic.
Dunfermline have signed Kallum Higginbotham from Kilmarnock, the 27-year-old winger joining the League One champions on a one-year deal.
The former Huddersfield, Motherwell and Partick player was among a group of contracted players who were told by Killie manager Lee Clark immediately after their play-off triumph over Falkirk last season to find new clubs. Only Conrad Balatoni has yet to move on.
Pars manager Allan Johnston told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to have signed Kallum, he is a quality player and someone I've admired for a long time. He will add further quality to our squad for the season ahead."

A group opposed to Aberdeen's plans to build a new stadium on the outskirts of the city has vowed to continue its campaign despite facing online abuse.
The Say No To Kingsford Stadium group told BBC Scotland it had been inundated with abuse from some fans.
