Dundee United keeper Benji Siegrist has admitted that he hasn’t given much thought to his long-term future despite entering the final months of his Tannadice contract – insisting he is happy in Dundee.

The Swiss keeper has been one of the Arabs’ top performers over the last few seasons, attracting interest from a host of clubs – including a summer bid from Ipswich Town that was immediately dismissed by Dundee United.

While the interest in Siegrist in sure to ramp up in January when the transfer window opens, the 29-year-old is open to extending his three-year stint in the City of Discovery.

“I feel happy and I hope people see that I’m happy here,” Siegrist said.

“I hope that reflects in my performances. I try to lead by example. Things are going great, I am happy to be part of it and to be fully engaged.

“What will be will be, it’s not something I think about much.

 

“I just love to play football, I like to come in, do my work and go home to watch more football.”

Losing Siegrist would be a huge blow for Dundee United

While United have had to cope with being without Siegrist through injury at times, losing him on a free would be a huge blow for the Arabs.

There has been plenty interest in luring him away from Tannadice so Terrors boss Thomas Courts will be hoping they can convince him his future lies in Dundee.

If they don’t, they will have a massive job on their hands trying to replace the Swiss keeper.
