Polish goalkeeper Grzegorz Szamotulski will play his last match for Dundee United on Tuesday night, in the semi-final of the League Cup against Aberdeen at Tynecastle.
The former Sturm Graz player agreed a 1-month extension to remain at Tannadice as cover for the injured Lukasz Zaluska, but will definitely be moving on before the January transfer window closes on Thursday night.
However, with so much interest in the talented keeper, who`s been capped 13-times for Poland, it`s not going to be an easy for Szamotulski to choose which club to sign for.
In goalkeeping terms, 31-year-old Szamotulski isn`t really that old, but I have a feeling that he`s looking for one last big move, before the end of his career.
So, he`ll obviously be delighted that German giants Borussia Dortmund have be rumoured to be interested, while an offer from cash-strapped Rangers might be flattering, but it`s unlikely to be the best deal on the table.
Besides, why would Szamotulski want to move to Rangers, when they`ve already admitted he would be an understudy to Allan McGregor..... No, Szamotulski is a talented enough goalie to be 1st choice at almost any club that can afford him.
"We are definitely interested in him," McCoist claimed to the BBC over the weekend, but why wouldn't they be interested - they`ve seen how good he's been, when Rangers have been playing against him!
Celtic were also linked with a move for the Pole, but have since re-signed Arthur Boric on an extended deal, so that wouldn`t be a great move for Szamotulski either.
And don't get me started on the rumours linking him with a move to Hearts or Hibs!!
After recovering for a knee injury, Szamotulski will play against Aberdeen on Tuesday night, as Levein gives him one last chance to earn himself a contract with a bigger club.
"Szamo will play in the CIS game and that will be his last for us - his contract is up and he'll be leaving after that." admitted Levein.
