Three players have been told by axe-wielding Jim McIntyre that they are now surplus to requirement and will leave Dens when the January transfer window kicks in on the 1st.
Andy Boyle will head back down South to Preston North End when his loan comes to an end as will Calvin Miller who has seen his season-long stay cut short and will return to parent club Celtic.
Adil Nabi’s will also move on to pastures new after his contract expires at the turn of the year.
McIntyre has however held contract talks with midfielder Martin Woods about extending his stay as he aims to put together a team that will hopefully have it in them to haul the club off the bottom of the table and clear of ay relegation worries.
