Cammy Kerr signs new Dundee deal after rejecting chance to stay in Premiership

Cammy Kerr has signed a new two-year deal with Dundee after rejecting the chance to remain in the Premiership.

The full-back is a product of the Dark Blues’ youth academy and has played over 130 times for the Dens club, who will be in the Championship come August.

Kerr captained the side and scored in the final match of the season against St Mirren when new boss James McPake was caretaker manager and now becomes McPake’s first signing since his appointment as permanent gaffer last week.

Kerr said: “As soon as I was offered the deal to stay at Dundee I wanted to jump at the chance.

“I am every excited for the new season and raring to go.

“I had an offer from the Scottish Premiership but being at Dundee was my priority.

“The club is close to my heart and it’s no secret that I wanted to stay.”

Kerr is particularly happy about working with newly-appointed boss McPake.

The defender added: “When the manager was announced it was something that really appealed to me.

“I have known him for so long and he’s helped me a lot during my time at Dundee.

“To also get Jimmy Nicholl (as assistant manager) on board is great for me as he is a former full-back and someone I can learn a lot from.

“I now want to have a good season, be consistent throughout the year and keep learning every day at training.

“The club’s aim is to get back to the Premiership. It will be a tough season – there are a lot of good teams in the league – but that’s the aim.”
