Dark Blues line up Czech duo

Dundee are to welcome two highly-rated young players from the Czech Republic to Dens next week with a view to possibly taking the pair on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
Dark Blues chief executive Dave MacKinnon has struck a deal with Czech side Jablonec which will see striker Ondrej Novotny (18) and midfielder Pavel Patka (19) arrive at the club on Monday, along with a coach.
“They are coming over for a week to see what they think of us and we think of them and if everything is okay we’ll hopefully arrange to keep them here on loan for the rest of the season,’’ said MacKinnon.
“Both players are keen to come to Scotland because they believe that will assist their development and we feel this is definitely an avenue worth exploring.’’
