Burnley's McDonald offer rejected

Dundee have turned down a 250,000 bid from Burnley for Scotland Under-21 midfielder Kevin McDonald.

Dens Park chairman Bob Brannan told BBC Sport: "We have refused an offer which does not meet our valuation.

"We do not want to rush into anything. The deadline for transfers is three months away and we will not be rushed into doing bad busines."

Several other English sides are thought to be preparing offers for McDonald, who has one year left on his contract.

Celtic and Everton were interested in the player last season, and now West Brom, Plymouth and Crystal Palace are among those tracking him.

However, Dundee manager Alex Rae told BBC Sport: "He will not be going cheaply.

"If we cannot get the fee he is worth, he'll be staying at Dens."
