Dundee may have two games left of this campaign but boss Paul Hartley is working hard to have his squad in place for next season as quickly as possible.
The Dens manager wants to conclude his business sooner rather than later and as well as speaking to new transfer targets, he is also looking for answers from current players who are out of contract.
Hartley said: “We have offered Kosta Gadzhalov something, we have offered Paul McGinn something and we will speak to Thomas Konrad in the next day or so.
“We still want to add two or three players and I have spoken to a couple of targets.
“We are just waiting to hear back and I will be looking for a decision in the next week or so.
“It is important to get your business done as soon as you can to get the players in, bring them on pre-season instead of waiting until July or August.
“The season starts much earlier this year so you need your squad in place.”
While Hartley is looking to add to his roster, speculation continues to swirl round the future of two of the club’s prize assets, Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings.
However, the manager admitted no-one had yet made a move for either of them.
He said: “I have not heard anything. We have not had any concrete offers for any of our players.”
Hartley also poured cold water on a recent report that stated Hemmings had a £250,000 buy-out clause in his contract saying, “I don’t know where that’s come from.
“There’s nothing in that.
“We have said before we are not ready to go and sell those two players but we cannot stop speculation around them either.”
After the disappointment of Saturday’s defeat at home to Hamilton, Hartley is determined his players will mark their final game of the season at Dens tonight against Kilmarnock with a win.
He said: “We have a home game and we want to finish with a good performance in front of our own supporters who have been great this season.
“The game has real importance for us.
“We don’t know how Killie are going to be. Will they have one eye on the play-offs? However, I am sure they will want to build a bit of momentum going into them so it is still an important game.”
Dundee will be without the injured Gary Harkins, Paul McGowan, Cammy Kerr and James McPake.
