DAVID Hopkin has refused to be drawn on speculation linking Morton with Clyde defender Tom Lang.

The 21-year-old has been one of the first names linked with a move to the Ton after a successful season at the Cumbernauld outfit.

Lang featured 24 times for the Bully Wee this season as they secured second spot in their division, losing out to Peterhead on the automatic promotion place in League Two.

But they triumphed in the League One play-offs, beating Edinburgh City before toppling Annan Athletic. The English defender started his youth career out with Championship outfit Birmingham City in 2010-15, before making the move north of the border to sign with Rangers.

He stayed with the Glasgow side until 2016 when he was released, trying his luck on trial at several teams across the UK before eventually joining then-Championship side Dumbarton.

He rarely featured at the time under ex-Ton midfielder Stevie Aitken, playing just six times, making one appearance as the Sons survived relegation.

He moved to League One side Stranraer, but left shortly after with the Stair Park outfit having to release a number of players because of financial problems.

The ex-Scotland youth international is out of contract this summer, and has also been linked with a move to League One teams Falkirk and Airdrie.

But Hopkin says lots of names will be linked with the Cappielow outfit over the summer.

When asked about Lang, the Ton boss told the Tele: “There’s numerous players we’re interested in and numerous players being sent to us each day.”

l Meanwhile, Hopkin, right, is urging fans to dig deep and help boost the playing budget by buying season tickets for Ton’s Championship campaign. He said: “The chairman and the board have been very supportive and the season ticket money brought in will go towards strengthening the first-team squad.

“I think it’s so important for the people of Inverclyde and the local community to buy in and be part of the club. That’s the message I want to send: I want us to do this together.”

Season tickets are now available to purchase at gmfc.net, at the stadium and Smiths of Greenock.
