Pressley Wants To Finalise Deal Soon

Pressley Wants To Finalise Deal Soon

Steven Pressley is hoping to finalise a deal with his new club as soon as possible.

Dundee United's Craig Levein has been intouch with the Scotland International and admits that his chances of bringing the 33-year-old to Tannadice are slim, but he's at least pleaded his case with Pressley.

"I spoke to Steven yesterday and he knows I want to sign him, but he has other offers to consider and I would say we are well down the pecking order," said Levein.

"From speaking to him, I think he wants his future sorted out sooner rather than later, but, right now, I`m not holding my breath so far as our chances go."

Rangers were being linked with a move for the defender, but have since publically denied any interest. Though, Celtic, Southampton and Derby are among several clubs who have admitted an interest in signing Pressley.

"Of course I would like to sign Pressley, I think if you asked 90 percent of the managers in Scotland, they would say the same thing," said Levein.

"I am fairly realistic about these things and I am sure he will have a lot of very good offers - but I would love to see him here."

"I had a chat with him yesterday about a number of things, not just about coming to Tannadice. I have made a pitch to him and we will see what happens."

"I don't think I would be doing my job properly for Dundee United if I did not make an effort to get him."

Im glad Dundee United are showing ambition by approaching Pressley, but its unlikely he'll ever return to Tannadice.

Raith Rovers 2 Dundee United 1

Dundee United's promotion hopes received another major setback with a 2-1 defeat to Raith Rovers at Stark's Park.

Goals either side of the break from Craig Barr and Ryan Hardie gave the visitors too much to do despite Simon Murray's late reply.

Defensive uncertainty already witnessed Hardie being denied by Cammy Bell before Barr opened the scoring when heading in Chris Johnston's free-kick as the interval approached.

That was improved upon when Hardie drove a low second earl
