Dundee Utd reject Catania offers

It is reported that Dundee United rejected two different offers from Catania for striker Johnny Russell in the last three weeks.

According to BBC Sport and Sky Sports, the most recent bid worth €600,000 (around £515,000) was considered to be below the player’s valuation.

The 23-year-old Scot only has one year left on his contract, so Catania were hoping to tempt the club into a sale at a cheap price.

It is possible Catania will continue to raise their bids in future, though Russell is also of interest to Celtic and several English clubs.

He is currently on the treatment table due to broken fibula.
