Dundee and striker Marcus Haber have literally gone their separate ways.
While the Dark Blues were training in the sun at the Estadio Municipal de Albufeira in Portugal, the Canadian international was en route to South Africa in search of a new club.
The Dens men will play a bounce match against Sunderland today as their pre-season camp in the Algarve gathers pace.
Neil McCann’s men, who are based at the Vale do Lobo resort, have enjoyed – or endured – double training sessions since arriving on Wednesday night.
However, one man who definitely won’t be getting a runout against the Black Cats is Haber, who posted pictures of himself on social media embarking on a flight to Johannesburg despite still having a year of his contract to run.
Signed by then boss Paul Hartley in October 2016, it now seems Haber’s near two-year stay at Dundee is over.
As well as today’s training clash against Jack Ross’s Sunderland side, the Dens men were due to play English League Two team Mansfield Town tomorrow.
However, that fixture has been cancelled, with Mansfield citing “unforeseen circumstances” and moving to play Portuguese team Vitoria SC instead.
It is unclear whether or not the Dark Blues will also make alternative arrangements.
The trip will then come to a close with a friendly against Portuguese team SC Farense in Albufeira on Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Sam Jackson has joined Dundee from Millwall.
The 18-year-old, who will be a part of James McPake’s young side next season, has joined his new teammates in Portugal.
