The future of Dundee’s star midfielder Glen Kamara remains unclear with only months remaining on his contract.

The 23-year-old has joined the Finnish international squad for their crucial Nations League clashes with Greece and Hungary.

However, his future at Dens Park may be coming to an end with manager Jim McIntyre admitting there has been no talks over any extension.

He said: “We have not had that conversation yet.

“I know there has been interest in him. He is a very good player and I can understand the interest.

“All we are doing right at this moment is assessing what we have got and then moving forward there will be discussions.”

With plenty of speculation over a transfer in the summer with clubs like Sunderland, Rangers, Celtic, Hearts and Hibs credited with interest in his services, suitors in the January window won’t be hard to find.

Meanwhile, the Dark Blues are hoping injured central defender Josh Meekings won’t need surgery on his troublesome hip that would mean the end of his season.

The 26-year-old has been out of action since the start of September but the club hope a further injection in the injury will sort the issue without needing to go under the knife.

He said: “Meekings is having another injection and we will take it from there.

“But there is the possibility he could face further surgery which if that was the case, he would be out for the season.

“Hopefully, the conservative treatment of having a jag will get him through it.”

Martin Woods (tight hamstring), Benjy Kallman (knee), Andy Boyle (knee) and Roarie Deacon (thigh) all have knocks but aren’t expected to be missing for the trip to Hibs next week.
