Paul Mcginn Set To Be Offered Longer Dundee Deal

Paul McGinn could be the next Dundee man in line for a contract extension.

The full-back, who signed a two-year deal last summer, has had tentative negotiations with the Dark Blues hierarchy recently about extending his stay at Dens Park beyond the summer of 2016.

Having been impressed by how quickly he adapted to life in the Premiership, manager Paul Hartley, who celebrates a year in the job today, is keen to keep McGinn, whose brother Stephen signed for the club earlier this week.

Twenty-four-year-old Paul has made 25 appearances for Dundee since arriving from Championship side Dumbarton in July, making the right-back slot his own. But he currently finds himself out of the first-team picture due to injury. A back problem has seen him sidelined since the 3-3 draw at Aberdeen on January 17.

McGinn has returned to training within the last week but it remains to be seen whether this Saturday’s visit of Celtic in the Scottish Cup fifth round will come too soon. Gaffer Paul is also waiting on the fitness of Iain Davidson and Gary Harkins for the clash, which will be the first time vanishing spray has been used north of the border. The duo were absent from the team that salvaged a late draw against Hamilton Accies at Dens Park last Saturday.

Davo has had problems with the stitches on his ankle and Harkins has a shin knock. With both Paul Heffernan and Alex Harris cup-tied, just former Sheffield United man Stephen McGinn is the only new boy likely to get the nod. Ben Priest, a Development League signing, will not feature.

In Heffernan’s absence the door is open for both David Clarkson and Luka Tankulic to be handed the chance to support Greg Stewart.

On the former Cowdenbeath front man, Paul was glowing with praise, as he is every week it seems.

“Even if he is not playing well, he always looks like he is going to do something,†he said. “You can play him anywhere. He showed that by coming off the right for his goal against Hamilton. He was our best player in terms of creativity in the final third.â€
