Arab Deuchar's Transfer Request

Just a week after Vital Football suggested that Dundee United were considering a move for Gretna`s Kenny Deuchar, the 26-year-old has sensationally handed in a transfer request to the division 1 leaders....coincidence?

The qualified doctor has been one of Scotland`s most prolific scorers in recent seasons, but he lost his place in the Gretna line-up to Colin McMenamin after struggling with injury earlier in the campaign.

Colin McMenamin then went on to score 13 goals in 14 games this season, claiming the 1st team place as his own and relegating Deuchar to the Gretna bench.

Deuchar joined Gretna from East Fife in 2004, scoring an incredible 70 goals in 97 appearances, including 6 hat-tricks in his first season at the club - which equalled Jimmy Greaves's British record of six hat-tricks in a season.

His goals were influential in Gretna`s back-to-back promotions from the 3rd into the 1st division and he was part of the side that narrowly lost out to Hearts on penalties in the Scottish Cup Final last season.

Since falling out of favour with manager Rowan Alexander, Doctor Deuchar has only managed 8 games & has scored only just once so far this season, against Clyde in October, but he is the kind of player that will always cause defenses problems and would be a valuable asset in the current goal-shy Dundee United squad.

Deuchar is actually a Dundee United supporter, who studied to become a Doctor at Dundee University.

Managing Director Brooks Mileson told the clubs official website, 'Kenny has been a tremendous asset to us and has been instrumental in our rise through the leagues.'

'I would be disappointed to see him go, but I would certainly not stand in his way and I would be prepared to listen to any offers that come in.'

'Kenny is a gentleman, and works hard for the club on and off the pitch.'

I think Kenny said he played for Raith Rovers &/or Falkirk reserves whilst he was studying at Dundee University, but someone would have to confirm that, because my memory of my time at University is a bit hazy (for some reason?!?!) ;-)

What! You can't sign the doctor. Gretnam need him so they get promoted to the SPL. Leave him alone!

Nah - he has looked off the pace this season while Colin McMenamin has been scoring a goal a game ish. Davie Graham is also more up to the pace, and even young Matthew Berkeley looks more up for it. However, I'd suggest he'll either go back to East Fife, or move to Morton as they look to secure promotion to the First. Queen of the South are also a possible destination, I suppose, as are Hamilton Accies as I think his hospital is up there. Depends on whether he wants to do more doctoring, I suppose.
