Loan star James Vincent admits his future remains shrouded in uncertainty after a fine start to his career at Dunfermline.
The 28-year-old arrived in Fife on loan from Dundee last month after failing to cement a first-team berth under Dee boss Neil McCann, making just five appearances this term.
However, with a year still to run on his contract at Dens Park, talks will be required in the summer to see if the former Inverness favourite has a future with the Dark Blues.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it,” said Vincent.
“It’s not a conversation I’ve had, or even thought about having, with the manager (Neil McCann) or the club there. It was just a case of we kind of knew where we stood with each other and I needed to get out and play games.
“Everyone was happy for me to do that — the manager, (managing director) John Nelms there — and I’m glad the clubs agreed and got everything sorted.”
