The return of Stevie May to St Johnstone is hanging in the balance, with a last minute hitch putting the deal in doubt.
Courier Sport understands that the Aberdeen striker had passed a medical after agreeing his departure from Pittodrie and was expected to sign for Saints yesterday and possibly even play in the Betfred Cup game against Brechin City.
There was no unveiling, however.
After fearing they would have to move on to another target, Dundee’s hopes of snapping May up have been revived.
There was no sign of Estonian centre-back Madis Vihmann either but that signing isn’t in jeopardy, it is believed.
Manager Tommy Wright decided not to speak to the media after the Brechin game.
His team beat the Angus side 4-0 with goals from Scott Tanser, Chris Kane, Callum Hendry and Matty Kennedy.
It was the step up in performance Wright had demanded, with the Perth men controlling the tie pretty much from start to finish.
Meanwhile, Brechin boss Barry Smith said: “I don’t want to be too harsh on the players because they gave me everything. St Johnstone were excellent.
“We’ve got to give them credit because we are still finding our feet, given the number of players that have come in. We aren’t up to the levels of fitness that we want yet but that will come.”
