Dundee are braced for bids for centre-back Steven Caulker ahead of the English transfer window slamming shut tomorrow.
The English international has been superb since signing for the Dark Blues on a free transfer back in February.
That form has caught the eye of a number of clubs, with Leeds United reported to be readying a £1.5 million bid.
Any offer for the 26-year-old would have to be substantial for Dundee to consider it.
The Tele revealed last season that the Dens Park club had turned down a seven-figure bid from Rosenborg for the central defender.
Whether the club would be able to resist that kind of money as he enters the final year of his contract is questionable.
Added to the mix is the reported bust-up with manager Neil McCann while on the club’s pre-season training camp in Portugal.
Meanwhile, Ayr United have rejected a bid of £150,000 for star striker Lawrence Shankland from English National League side AFC Fylde.
That means Dundee will have to dig deep if they still want to land the striker after they made an enquiry about his availability to Ayr last week. The Honest Men, however, are holding out for £250,000.
A club statement said: “To pre-empt any speculation in the media, we can confirm that we have received a bid of £150k from a club south of the border. Our board of directors rejected the bid.”
Manager Ian McCall said: “Lawrence remains fully committed to this club as his performance on Saturday showed. He is contracted to Ayr United.”
