2 More Players Reject Dundee United?
Dundee United manager Craig Levein must be getting used to rejection, after a summer of players turning down moves to Tannadice.
David Weatherston opted for Saint Johnstone, David Porter would rather join Motherwell, Jason Scotland moved south to join Swansea City and Leicester City`s Mark De Vries decided to stay put.
Now, its looks likely that Belgian international Cedric Roussel is going to join the list, after reports suggesting the Brescia striker isn`t interested in playing a season on-loan with Dundee United
The 29-year-old former Standard Liege, Coventry and Wolves attacker, has been training with Dundee United since last week, to give manager Levein a chance to see the player up close.
However, despite reports that Dundee United and Brescia have already agreed terms, it appears that the Tannadice club are struggling to match the financial demands of the club or the player.
"I am there to train, but my feelings say no," admitted Roussel to Teamtalk.
"There is a financial difference between the parties.'
Although, Levein is still hopeful of securing the services of a goalscorer before Monday nights match against Kilmarnock.
"I am working on a number of fronts, but things are often more complicated than they might appear," Levein told the Courier.
"Trying to get some deals done over the past couple of days hasn`t been easy - but I am working away and still hope to have someone in for Monday."
Meanwhile, Blackburn youngster Joe Garner has also evaded Dundee United, after preferring to sign for Carlisle United in a £140,000 deal.
