James McPake has admitted that he is a fan of Celtic midfielder Ewan Henderson, but he has nothing to report on Dundee’s reported bid to sign the player on loan.

Championship clubs can still make loan signings, and Henderson was recently linked with a move to Dens Park. However, McPake has no more details on if the player will be joining Dundee, even though he has confirmed that he likes the player.

“A player I like”

“No update at all. I’ve seen stuff’s came out about it. It’s a player I like. Similar to when Paul McMullan was a Dundee United player, technically he still is, and he’s on loan. But Ewan’s a Celtic player at the minute, so I’ll not speak about him” he said.

However, one thing that McPake was happy to discuss was the club’s business in the January transfer window. He is very pleased that the club managed to sign not only the aforementioned McMullan, but also Jason Cummings.

“I’m really happy”

“Jason Cummings and Paul McMullan were on our recruitment list for the summer. So we’ve managed to get them in six months early which we’re delighted with. I’m really happy with what we have done.

“Paul McMullan has been a player I’ve wanted for a while. I’m surprised I’ve got him, if I’m honest. And Jason is one we were earmarking and going to have a chat with, with regard to the summer coming up. So I’m delighted to get both of them in” McPake said.

Dundee is in action on Saturday against Inverness, as they look to bounce back from last week’s loss to Raith Rovers.
