  • Dundee In Talks To Extend Woods Stay While Three Players Depart

    And so it begins, the big january clear-out at the kilmac stadium at dens park.

    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.

      Relegation was confirmed  after last weeks defeat at home to Hamilton which meant that todays match was the first of two meaningless ties before the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

      Kenny Miller netted the only goal of the game after being set up by fellow striker Andrew Nelson.

      His goal put Miller into the clubs history books as our oldest ever goalscorer at 39 years and 121 days, replacing Gordon Smith who had previously held the record after he scored for the Dark Blues in a 2-0 win away to Falkirk  in the penultimate match of 1962/63. Smith was 38 at the time but was just of a few days away from his 39th birthday.

      After the match, McIntyre praised Millers goal that stopped his record breaking run of league defeats as Dundee manager which matched our worst ever run set back in 1898/99:

      The Dark Blues had taken the lead twice only for the Ayrshire team to draw level and for the last twenty-five minutes of this tie, were under pressure from the high flying Kilmarnock.
      Striker Andrew Nelson was undoubtedly the star of the show in a Dark Blue top with his double but his fellow strike partner Kenny Miller had a golden opportunity to steal the limelight from the young hitman when he was brought down in the Kilmarnock box following a quick counter attack from Dundee with seconds to spare.
      Miller stepped up but his tame strike was easily saved and with that, the referee blew his final whistle with both sides taking a share of the spoils.
      The draw did see Dundee open a three-point gap on bottom side St Mirren but Hamilton would go on to win their game pull three-points themselves from Dundee. The point gained by Dundee is a good one but following Saturdays result when Hamilton scored in the 91st minute to deny us a win and now missing the chance to win this tie right at the death, some may see this as four points dropped in the matter of days.
      Dundee manager Jim McIntyre however refuses to put any blame on Miller and feels his teams performance either side of half time were night and day with the draw perhaps a fair result.

      Jim McAlister, Gary Irvine and Stephen McGinn could be set to stay at Dundee.
      The Tele understands negotiations between the trio and the Dark Blues have begun this week about getting them signed up beyond the end of the month. It had been widely expected that the three, along with Kyle Letheren, Kostadin Gadzhalov and Martin Boyle, were set to walk when their Dens deals come to an end this month.
      But it’s believed manager Paul Hartley is keen to keep them all on board, with one-year extensions thought to be on the table. As revealed in the Tele this week, a number of Premiership outfits, including Kilmarnock, as well as a host of top end Championship clubs, have been casting their eye over McAlister.
      As a result the 29-year-old midfielder, who has made more than 150 appearances for the Dark Blues, is not expected to be short of options. Full-back Irvine has expressed his desire to stay at the club, but given his consistent performances this campaign, probably his best year at Dens, he may also not be short of admirers.
      McGinn’s situation is slightly different though. The former Sheffield United and Watford man has always been coy when asked about where his future may lie, even though Paul is desperate to get him tied down on a deal.
      The midfielder has stated he’s delighted with the opportunity handed to him by the gaffer, as well as the fact he’s content at a club who want him to stay. But having done so well in the English Championship at Vicarage Road before injury as good as brought his career south of the border to an end, he’s been on the record as saying he’s keen to finish the business he started, if the chance arises.
      Things seem a little more straight forward in terms of two of the other out-of-contract players.
      Bulgarian Gadzhalov, again set to start at centre-half at Dundee United on Sunday, is expected to leave, so too is No 2 goalkeeper Letheren, who will link up with Chris Coleman’s Wales squad this summer.
      That just leaves Hibernian loanee Martin Boyle. The wide man has enjoyed a successful spell at Easter Road in recent weeks but is not expected to be offered terms. Dundee will be due compensation should he secure a move.
