Last night Dundee Cheif Executive Dave MacKinnon spoke of Burnley's offer, he said:'Burnley made an offer that didn't meet our valuation and that's where we are with it at the moment. 'Whether that changes I don't know but Burnley have been made aware of our valuation and it's up to them to come back to us.'

He sounds good,donaldo, thanks for the imput. Here is some more news from ThisisLondon site:Burnley could be poised to sign Dundee's talented midfielder Kevin McDonald within a matter of days. Turf Moor boss Owen Coyle has already had one bid of around £400,000 for the Scotland Under-21 star rejected by Dundee. But, last night, he was ready to increase his offer in order to land a player he regards as one of the top talents in the country. After selling Kyle Lafferty to Rangers last week, Burnley have cash to spend and Coyle has made McDonald his top signing priority. It is understood the 19-year-old midfielder, who has been linked with Celtic and Everton, views a switch to the Championship as a good career move. Dundee are holding out for at least £500,000 for the player but, even though they want him to stay in order to spearhead their push for promotion to the SPL next season, they know they can't stand in his way if he wants to move on.
