Speaking to the Evening Telegraph, Dundee manager Paul Hartley has categorically stated that no player will be leaving Dens Park this summer.

Following Dundee’s fine campaign in the Scottish Premier League last season, it has been no surprise to see a host of their players attracting the interest from a number of clubs.

Understandably the player who has been garnering the most attention from opposition teams at the moment is striker Greg Stewart.

Stewart enjoyed a stunning campaign last term, contributing to 26 goals in 42 appearances and reports from the Evening Telegraph have claimed that Leeds United, Aberdeen and Rangers are all very keen on signing the 26-year-old.

However, Dundee clearly do not want to lose Stewart and in order to stave off potential suitors, they had slapped a seven figure asking price (Evening Telegraph) on the striker.

Dundee manager Paul Hartley has repeatedly stated (BBC) that he wants to keep hold of Stewart this summer and now in his most categorical statement as of yet, the 39-year-old has insisted that no one will be leaving Dens Park this summer.

Speaking to the Evening Telegraph after Dundee’s pre-season victory over at Dumbarton on Wednesday night, he said, “There will be no players going out but we do anticipate some coming in. Hopefully, we will make progress in the next day or so. There will be more than one player coming in.”
