Dunfermline Copy United's Example

Dunfermline Copy United's Example

Dunfermline have copied Dundee United's example by telling their longest serving player he no longer has a future at the club.

Stephen Kenny has a similar problem to Craig Levein and has started to clear out some of his underperforming 1st team players to free up finances to bring in fresh faces.

Andy Tod is reported to be just the first of several players that no longer has a future at East End Park, and has been told he is free to find himself a new club.

Dundee United's longest serving player, David McCracken, was similarly told last week that his contract at the club wont be renewed when it expires in the summer.

Dunfermline have already signed Celtic's Jim O'Brien, Liverpool's Adam Hammill and Shelbourne's Bobby Ryan during the January transfer window, but Kenny still wants to add a few more players to his squad.

Partick Thistle and St Johnstone are rumoured to be interested in signing defender Tod, but he wants to remain at Dunfermline until the end of the season, so he is eligible for a testimonial match against Everton.

Tod was brought to Dunfermline by Bert Paton in 1993 and is currently the clubs longest severing player.

He has played over 264 times for the Pars, scored 28 goals - several of them against Dundee United, and has also spent time at Tannadice on loan.

"I've given him permission to speak to other clubs," Stephen Kenny told the Courier.

"There could be a few other players on their way out, but I don't want to say who they are as I haven't spoken to them yet."

"We might sign one more, We're looking at the possibility of another defender but we'll need to wait and see how it goes."
