Josh Todd admits he has a lot of unfinished business to complete with Queen of the South before he can focus all his attention on moving to Dundee this summer.
The midfielder signed a pre-contract with the Dark Blues back in February but two months on, the club’s Premiership status is now under severe threat and they are odds on to be playing in the Championship next season.
Todd hopes that won’t be the case but at the moment he is fully concentrating on helping the Doonhamers win on Saturday against Partick Thistle at Palmerston in what is the last round of fixtures of the regular season in the Championship.
The Dumfries side are sitting level on points with second bottom Alloa and the 24-year-old is determined to play his part in securing Queens’ place in the league for next season.
Todd said: “It would be terrible to leave with the team relegated so I am totally committed to things this weekend.
“I am not focusing on Dundee at all – I am only looking at Queens right now.
“I have already signed there and am going this summer, so I can’t influence anything.
“It is completely out of my control.
“I’ll just have a look at it at the end of the season and see where Dundee are.”
Todd added: “Obviously I hope they stay up but my only focus right now is Queen of the South and this game with Partick on Saturday.
“It’s a cup final for us this weekend – the game is massive.
“The whole league has been crazy at the bottom end. It’s incredible so many teams have been involved in it.
“We had a good run and then a bad run, and that has allowed us to get sucked into it.
“We are playing a team who are down there with us so it’s going to be a real scrap and hopefully we can get out of it.”
