Dundee will not allow Kane Hemmings to leave on the cheap this summer despite reports he has a buyout clause in his contract. The defender has been linked with a move back to England with Leeds United and Aston Villa showing an interest in the player.

Dundee Evening Telegraph have reported Dundee will only consider selling Hemmings if a seven figure bid is made by the interested clubs.

There have been claims Hemmings has a £250,000 termination fee implemented into his contract, but this has been denied by the SPL club.

The 24-year-old still has two years left on his current deal with Dundee, and subsequently the Scottish side aren’t under pressure to sell the defender in this transfer window.

This means Leeds United and Aston Villa will need to table an offer greater than what Dundee want for Hemmings’ teammate Gregg Stewart, which is said to be £1m plus.

Stewart has also been linked with a move to Leeds United in recent months.
