Feeney snubs English clubs

Published Add your comment

Warren Feeney on Friday night revealed he turned down the chance of a permanent move back to England in order to help Dundee United into Europe.

The on-loan Cardiff striker has been the subject of interest from Burnley, Huddersfield and Carlisle since the transfer window opened but told manager Craig Levein he wants to stay at Tannadice until the end of the season.

"The manager called me to ask what I wanted to do because there was interest from clubs in England. But I told him I wanted to stay. I've come up here to play football and am loving it." said the Northern Ireland international.

"The club is on a roll, it's exciting times here and I want to be part of that.

"I told Craig Levein I'd be here for the season and that's what I'm going to stick to.

"I'd love to play a part in helping this club get back into Europe."

With Cardiff vying for promotion to the Barclays Premier League, Feeney acknowledges his future is uncertain. But while he admits the final decision will be down to his employers, he will not rule out making a move to United permanent.

He said: "I've got another year left at Cardiff so it's really just a case of waiting until the summer to see what happens.

"They are in the play-offs just now so who knows what could happen in the next few months.

"The main thing just now is focusing on Dundee United, playing as many games and getting as many goals as I can.
