RAITH Rovers have made an improved offer to Iain Davidson in a bid to keep the out-of-contract midfielder at the club.

Davidson (pictured) has been mulling over several offers since the end of last season, with Dundee understood to be leading the chase for his signature.

However, with Rovers manager John McGlynn in America on holiday, Davidson met with assistant boss Paul Smith this week who offered the player improved terms, understood to be a two-year deal with add-ons.

Davidson has told the club that he will make a decision on his future this weekend and Raith are hopeful that the improved offer will tempt their prize midfielder to stay.

However, the Press understands that Davidson, who hails from Kirkcaldy, is leaning towards a move away from Stark’s Park after eight years at his home-town club with Dens Park his likely destination.

Club director Turnbull Hutton said: “We’ll be disappointed if we lose Iain to another First Division club, but if he’s moving to a higher level you can understand that.”
