Dundee manager Paul Hartley is planning for Saturday’s game against Rangers with Greg Stewart in his squad after the forward turned down Birmingham’s initial contract offer.

Both clubs agreed a fee earlier this week but personal terms have proved a sticking point.

Hartley said at his Thursday morning media conference: “He’s still a Dundee player. He’s part of the squad for Saturday and will train today.

“He’s fit. He missed Monday and Tuesday because of injury and he’s available today.

“He has turned down the personal terms just now. Will that change? I don’t know. The club had agreed the transfer fee, the personal terms have not been agreed.”

Birmingham boss Gary Rowett revealed he was looking at possible alternatives after the failure to cut a quick deal.

Quoted on his club’s official Twitter account, Rowett said: “We agreed a fee a couple of days ago but player and agent have not agreed terms we set out.

“It’s up in the air. We like the player but we now have to look at other options as well.”
