Dundee boss Paul Hartley denies any offers for Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings amid interest from big clubs

The likes of Rangers and Leeds United have been linked with the forward.

Dundee are striving to keep one of their star players this summer. The club have offered Greg Stewart, who has been linked with the likes of Rangers and Leeds United, a new contract and manager Paul Hartley has told the Evening Telegraph this week that the club was yet to receive an official offer for Stewart or striker Kane Hemmings, who was also linked with Leeds, Preston and Sheffield United by the The Evening Telegraph last month after his excellent form in the Scottish top-flight this season.

Despite the apparent interest in the player his manager Paul Hartley has made it clear that, as of this morning, nobody had made a solid bid for the player – who has been nominated for the Scottish PFA Players’ Player of the Year award two seasons running.

Hartley stated:

“We have not had any concrete offers for any of our players.

“We have said before we are not about to go and sell those two players (Stewart and Hemmings).

“But we cannot stop the speculation around them. They are good players.”

The Evening Telegraph also recently reported that Dundee offered Stewart a deal which would make him the club’s highest paid player.

The report mentioned the interest of Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers as well as Championship side Leeds United and League One outfit Sheffield United.

The Scottish Sun reported in February that Rangers would be making a move for Stewart in the summer.

Stewart is a boyhood Rangers player and it seems the Glasgow side would like to bring him back to Ibrox.

The BBC Scottish gossip column recently claimed the Express as reporting that Leeds and Rotherham are also keeping tabs on the attacker.

But it appears that Dundee have not yet had to field any offers from Rangers, Leeds or anyone for either Stewart or Hemmings.
