Dundee star Jordan McGhee pens two-year extension ahead of Premiership return

Dundee defender/midfielder Jordan McGhee has penned a two-year contract extension ahead of the club's return to the Scottish Premiership.

The 26-year-old, who hails from East Kilbride, was a major part of the Dark Blues' Championship-winning success last season and new boss Tony Docherty has tied the players' player of the year down until summer 2025.

McGhee missed the last month of the season after suffering knee ligament damage in a win over Raith Rovers at Dens Park in April.

McGhee joined Dundee from Falkirk in 2019 and the former Hearts man has racked up 129 appearances for the Tayside club in that time, netting 11 goals.

After signing his new contract, McGhee told the club website: “I am delighted to extend my stay at Dundee for another few years.

"It’s a club I feel really at home with now and I love playing for the club.

"I am really looking forward to the hard work ahead and getting back on the pitch in front of the fans in the Premiership.

"It’s an exciting few years ahead for the club and I will keep giving my all to bring success and keep building on last year.”

His new deal comes hot on the heels of the club announcing the signing of Albion Rovers hero Charlie Reilly, also on a two-year contract.
