Neil McCann says Dundee are doing everything they can to tie down in-demand midfielder Glen Kamara to a longer deal at Dens Park.
The Finnish international, who is set to join up again with his national side shortly, still has a year to run on his current deal.
However, his superb displays throughout the last campaign have attracted plenty of interest with Celtic, Rangers and Swansea among others looking at him.
Answering questions at a fans’ Q&A last night, Neil insisted the Dark Blues won’t be accepting anything other than “serious cash” for the midfielder and is in talks to extend his current deal.
Neil said: “Glen Kamara has not gone under the radar. He didn’t pick up the Andrew De Vries Trophy, all the Supporters Player of the Year awards because he’s been under the radar.
“We’re not ignorant of the fact he’ll get attention.
“I don’t want Glen Kamara to go anywhere.
“He will be going nowhere unless it is right for this club and I mean it will need to be serious cash so I can take away all your fears that Glen Kamara will not be walking out Dens Park unless this club get a very big deal.
“We are currently speaking to Glen and have been for a wee bit now.
“I met him the other week for breakfast before he went on holiday because he’s been called up to the Finnish squad again.
“That’s another feather in the club’s cap because he’s become a full international here at this club, not Arsenal.
“I’ve spoken to him and he’s loved his time here, so he’s not in any rush to get away and those talks will continue.”
Finland play Romania and Belarus in June.
