Mikael Antoine-Curier has revealed he could rejoin Hamilton from Dundee before the transfer window closes.
The French striker impressed for the Accies last season on loan with seven SPL goals from 26 league appearances.
Hamilton have made a slow start to the new campaign and now they could be about to re-sign the striker to bolster Billy Reid's options.
Antoine-Curier, who is to see a specialist on his progress after a knee clean-up operation, has confirmed the clubs are in talks.
"Hamilton have been talking with Dundee about me and they wanted to have a look at me and see how I was physically," he said.
"That happened on Saturday and it went well and now I will see the specialist on Tuesday in a routine appointment which was arranged for 10 days after the operation.
"I would be happy to stay at Dundee and also happy to play for Hamilton again. So we will see what happens this week."
