Terrors repel second Kenneth bid

Dundee United defender Garry Kenneth

Dundee United have described Blackpool's improved offer for defender Garry Kenneth as "an insult".

The Championship side have offered £100,000 for the centre-half, with the sum doubling after a year.

However, Tannadice chairman Stephen Thompson told BBC Scotland: "The offer is an insult. They are miles away from our valuation of Gary.

"They can come back four or five times if they want but they are nowhere near our valuation with their bid."

The original approach from the Seasiders came last week, with two instalments of £75,000 on offer.

"Someone like Danny Fox goes for £1.8m (Celtic to Burnley) and he can't lace the boots of (United full-back) Paul Dixon or (Hearts defender) Lee Wallace," added an irate Thompson.

Kenneth has played in almost every game for United this season, and has eight Scotland caps at Under-21 level.

The 22-year-old has been on the Tannadice club's books since February 2004, and made his first-team debut a year later in a Scottish Cup win over Queen of the South.
