Dundee have rejected a £250,000 offer from Burnley for midfielder Kevin McDonald.

Dens Park chairman Bob Brannan told BBC Sport: "We have refused an offer which does not meet our valuation.

"We do not want to rush into anything. The deadline for transfers is three months away and we will not be rushed into doing bad business."

Several other English sides are thought to be preparing offers for McDonald, who has one year left on his contract.

Celtic and Everton were interested in the player last season, and now West Brom, Plymouth and Crystal Palace are among those tracking him.

However, Dundee manager Alex Rae told BBC Sport: "He will not be going cheaply.

"If we cannot get the fee he is worth, he'll be staying at Dens."
