No Trial For Irish Trio At Tannadice

No Trial For Irish Trio At Tannadice

Craig Levein has quashed rumours that Jason Byrne is coming for a trial at Tannadice.

Earlier this week, Motherwell invited Byron`s teammate Richie Baker to a week`s trial at Fir Park.

However, Craig Levein has made it clear that he wont be asking the 28-year-old over to Dundee for a trial with the club.

Speaking to the Evening Telegraph, Levein said 'I`ve certainly made no moves to do that and I don`t have any plans.'

'You need permission from clubs, and the problem with contracted players is they cannot play in games, which is how I would like to see them.'

Other Shelbourne players that have been linked with Tannadice are striker Glenn Crowe & Cameroon international Joseph Ndo.

Although, Levein wont be able to see the players in action before the transfer window re-opens in January, because their season is over and a trial appears to be unlikely.

Glenn Crowe joined Shelbourne 2 years ago and - along with Jason Byrne - has been one of the clubs top scorers, scoring 18 times in 34 appearances this season alone.

The 28-year-old Dublin born player used to play for Bohemians, but before that also had stints with Wolves, Cardiff City, Exter City and Plymouth Argyle.

Joseph Ndo joined Shelbourne from St Pats, another side Dundee United played during their Irish pre-season tour in 2000.

The 30-year-old midfielder has played for Strasburg and Neuchatel Xamax and made 26 appearances for Shelbourne last season, scoring 4 times.
