    McIntyre Adds Two New Faces At Dens

    The announcement of 34-year-old Andrew Davies seemed imminent following his mutual release from Hartlepool a few days ago and he now joins up with Jim McIntyre who he played under at Ross County on an 18 month deal He was joined by Seny Dieng who completed a loan move until the end of the season from English Championship side Queens Park Rangers. In other Dundee news, Lewis Spence left the club last night and today signed for Championship leaders Ross County.

    Curran Crosses the Road To Join Dundee

    Curran was signed by Csaba Laszlo in the summer but failed to make an impression at Tannadice with only three goals in sixteen appearances. Rumours had swirled around the city that Curran would make the short trip up the street and even though he was an unused substitution today in United’s draw with Partick Thistle, both he and his now former employer were able to agree on an early contract termination to allow him a route back to the SPFL Premiership. Curran has previously enjoyed playing under Jim McIntyre whilst at Ross County which resulted in three successful seasons before the Highland teams relegation last term. Speaking to the official Dundee website, McIntyre was excited at adding Curran to his squad. “I’m absolutely delighted that Craig has signed tonight. He is a player I know very well from our time together previously.” “Craig is the right type, he has the right mentality and he is exactly what we need moving forward.”
  3. Possibly a load of keech but has anyone heard that Jesse Curran is going in the opposite direction when/if we sign Craig Curran? I've not been paying attention to any rumours the past few days.
  4. Well that was straight from his mouth so I guess we will just need to wait and see what happens then.
  5. He says he isn't leaving County, that was 5 mins ago. He did say a few days ago that he heard Dundee were interested but he told County to reject any offers. That was from one of my family who's a close friend with him.
  6. During his press conference this morning ahead of their clash with Tottenham, Warnock was quizzed about his transfer targets for the January window which included Glen Kamara. Warnock admitted that he had been watching the Finnish midfielder, adding fuel to the flames that Kamara was about to sign a pre-contract with the Welsh club, though he was coy about the situation. "I read that this morning, I’ll have to ask our lads if we’re interested!" Warnock joked. "He’s a good player without a shadow of a doubt, he’s one of a number of Scottish lads we’ve looked at."
  7. 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.
  8. The Dark Blues served up a lacklustre performance which ensured the St Johnstone headed back to Perth with possibly their easiest three-points of the season. With the Dee at the bottom of the table and fighting for survival, the way the home team rolled over and gave into a Saints side right before the opening of the January transfer window has possible added a few more names to the exit list that Jim McIntyre has drawn up. “We had four players who made contact with the St Johnstone boys, which is not enough,” said McIntyre. “If you are seeing players not committed, not seeing that fighting spirit, and seeing people disappear – because clearly that is what happened – then it’s very frustrating. “Everyone knows we have to get players in and this underlines that fact again. “The team clearly needs strengthened in January. It’s as clear as day that’s what has to happen. “We need to bring a freshness to things and the board know that. They’re not daft. “We need to get the right types now and I’m very confident I’ll get the backing we need.”
  9. McIntyre also confirmed recently that Sofien Moussa, Elton Ngwatala and Kharl Madianga weren’t in his plans and they were all free to find other teams to take the total of players heading for the exit door to six. McIntyre said: “We’ve had a couple of chats with some other players. Lewis Spence is another one that’s been told, if he can find a club, we will let him move on. “Jean Mendy is another one that we feel won’t get as much game time as he would like. Marcus Haber will also leave as well.” “Different jobs have different criteria. I took the Queen of the South job and all I added was two players and never moved anybody on because the group was a good group and they were doing well. “So sometimes you don’t need to change things, but quite clearly here we do, and we have got to freshen it up to give ourselves the best chance of staying in this division.”
