Lewis Toshney keen on rejoining Dundee for 2013/14 season

Dundee defender Lewis Toshney is keen on a return to Dens Park next season if he does not feature in parent club Celtic's plans.

The Scottish Premier League champions took up the option of a 12-month extension to Toshney's contract but he remains unsure how things will unfold.

"I don't know if Celtic want to keep me or sell me on," he said.

"Dundee have given me so much experience and I would definitely come back for another spell."

The 21-year-old has made 24 appearances for the Tayside club during his loan spell and intends to give it his best shot at Celtic during pre-season.

His only appearance for the champions came as a late substitute in a win over Aberdeen in 2011 and he also spent time on loan at Kilmarnock in 2012.

Under manager John Brown, Dundee went on an eight-game run during which they only lost once, but it was not enough to save them from relegation to the First Division.

"The gaffer here at Dundee has done absolutely brilliantly for us," Toshney said.

"He got us filled with confidence and we managed to get results under him.

"I would be more than happy to come back here again. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and the fans have been great with me."

And the Scotland Under-21 international insists he and his Dens Park team-mates will be giving their all in the final two SPL games.

"All the boys are fit and ready and we want to go out on a high by beating Kilmarnock on Saturday and then Hibs on the final day," he added.
