Dundee stays United with Thompson

Steven Thompson, Dundee United's chairman , has revealed that he has rejected an audacious bid for the club.

And Thompson insists he has no intention of selling up as the club bids to keep improving under manager Jackie McNamara. He said: "I was approached by a third party on behalf of a potential investor in England who wanted to know whether I was interested in selling.

"I told them the club was not for sale. We own Tannadice Park and the Gussie Park training facility across the road from the ground and are redeveloping that with a new European two-star artificial surface. The bank is off our back now. They have no say in who we sell and they do not take a cut of any players we may sell." Graphic on the right of Tannadice Park Stadium is via Wikimedia Commons.

United finished fourth in the Premiership and reached the final of the Scottish Cup last season in McNamara's first full term at the helm.

And Thompson said: "The fans have bought into what Jackie is doing with the team and the style of football we play.
