Transfer and Rumour Mill Thread 2018-19

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

There was a discussion in the Staff forum about keeping some topics together, and it was decided rather than having a whole forum for this it would be better to have one big topic in the Dundee FC Chat forum instead. So, this is the Rumour and Transfer Mill Thread for 2018-19 Season.

So anything to do with Transfers or Transfer rumours should be placed here.

Cheers :)

Seven weeks until our first pre-season friendly. Nine weeks until our first League Cup game. At least we've got the World Cup and transfer gossip to keep us going.

Ok let's get this started then. I heard there is a large framed Bulgarian striker inbound as wee speak. He's ready to start banging the goals in for the mighty Dees ??

Someone genuinely mentioned van der Vaart to me a few weeks back so it'll be interesting to see how he, Berbatov and Gardyne all link up.

Right. Rumours I've heard so far this window and/or have been mentioned here:

Outgoings

  • Kevin Holt to St Mirren on PCA
  • Mark O'Hara to St Mirren on PCA
  • Steven Caulker to Celtic
  • Glen Kamara to Rangers/Celtic/Bournemouth/Derby/Reading
  • Craig Wighton to Shrewsbury

Incomings

  • Jack Hamilton from Hearts
  • Rafael van der Vaart from FC Midtjylland ?
  • Michael Gardyne from Ross County
  • Scott Fraser from United (also linked with Hearts)
  • Gael Bigirimana

Completed Business

  • Calum Ferrie signs new 1 year deal - link
  • Kyle Gourlay signs new 1 year deal - link
  • Elliot Parish clause activated which extends deal by another season - link
  • Although not confirmed officially by the club, Jordan Piggott has stated on Twitter that he has left following the expiry of his contract

Other General Notes of Interest

  • Neil McCann and Paul Hartley having lunch together - possible deal for Dundee player with year remaining on deal (O'Dea, Faissal, Haber, Vincent etc) or discussion on sought after Craig Sibbald (rumours Falkirk way that a mistake in his contract means he can leave for minimal compensation)?

Not sure if that's a reliable enough source ?

Good luck to the boy though. Certainly doesn't look like a bad player whenever I've seen him. The standard of the 20s is ridiculously high right now and it's really competitive for places, it's a shame but we can't always afford to keep everyone around and Jeffries has obviously come in and looked good.

Felt a bit sorry for him when he come on in midfield against St Johnstone as he was out of his most comfortable position and obviously we didn't have Gowser or Kamara to help him through.

Not a rumour but I think we should be looking at Kal Naismith. Just released from Portsmouth (League 1)  and has a decent scoring record down there, 18 goals in 81 appearances. Not bad for a winger and he's 6ft 4in according to Wiki! Still only 26.

Going by last year, I won't believe any transfer rumours until I see it on the club's own website, Twitter or Facebook threads.  Agents give out nonsense all the time to try and get their players better deals.  If more than one club is reportedly interested it gives them more ammunition in any negotiations. Dundee don't tend to let the cat out of the bag until a signing has been made.

Thanks for that depressing dose of reality pal. Can you no just let us and the Bulgarian striker seen at Aldi the day I might add have oor rumours ?

Lol.  I would be happy with any ex Arsenal mates Kamara suggests could do the business for Dundee.

Charlie Adam coming home would a perfect way to kick off summer transfers. Then a double loan swoop from the huns for Lee Wallace & Michael O’Hallaron quickly following.

We'd have to hope the league changed the rules regarding loan deals if that was to be the case, Rob! Only one loanee from any club. Lee Wallace would be a brilliant signing although expensive. 

Cant see Gerrard getting rid though.

Ha ha ?... need to amend that to o’hallaron on a free and Wallace on loan. Don’t think he will come to us but he will def leave Gers as fell out with previous management and was already out favour with Declan John in good form.
