Dundee United have confirmed interest in Shelbourne defender Sean Dillon but contrary to speculation, a deal has not yet been agreed to bring the player to Tannadice.
The 23-year-old right-back has impressed scouts from the SPL club but while Shelbourne have claimed the move has been finalised, United boss Craig Levein insists this is very much a premature announcement.
Levein has yet to speak to either the player or his representatives and until talks have been concluded, no deal will be pushed through.
"He's a player I'd like to bring to the club but it's certainly not a done deal," Levein told the Daily Record.
"I think Shelbourne have jumped the gun by quite a bit because I've not actually spoken to him yet.
"It's one of a number of things we're working on and I'd expect it to take at least until the weekend before we'll know for sure what's on or off."
Levein continued to reveal that he has watched Hartlepool striker Jon Daly and that he will likely sound out the League Two club about his availability.
He is not, though, interested in bringing in Inverness defender Darren Dods, a target of former manager Craig Brewster.
"There is nothing in the speculation linking us with Darren Dods," he concluded.
