Kenneth set for Dundee United exit

Garry Kenneth has indicated he will be leaving Dundee United at the end of the season when his current contract expires.

The 24-year-old has been at Tannadice Park since 2003 as a youth player, but is now looking to move on to try and progress his career.

Kenneth has picked up two appearances for Scotland, where he made his full debut against Sweden in 2010 for Craig Levein’s side; however, he is currently not a regular in the starting line- up or squad. Those looking at the Scottish Premier League betting odds should bear this in mind.

The decision means he will be able to leave on a free transfer in the summer under the Bosman rule.

Kenneth has signalled his attention at finding a club in England if there is interest from any Premier League clubs as he looks to follow in the footsteps of David Goodwillie.

“It’s time for a change. I need a fresh go and it’s something I will look at over the next six months,” he told the Daily Record.

“The big challenge is to go down south and do it at a high level. A new start would be good for me. If I get my league form going again hopefully I’ll attract some interest.

Goodwille moved to Blackburn in the summer for a fee of £2 million after five successful seasons at Tannadice Park. Since then he has gone on to become a regular with the national side.

Mark Wilson is another player who decided to move on from Dundee United in 2006 when he signed for Celtic. The 27-year-old has now made close to 100 appearances for the Old Firm club and has won three SPL titles at Parkhead.
