The 24-year-old defender’s contract runs out in May and has told manager Peter Houston that he is moving on looking for a fresh challenge.
Kenneth was quoted in this morning’s Daily Record, saying: “It’s time for a change. I need a fresh go and it’s something I will look at over the next six months. The big challenge is to go down south and do it at a high level. A new start would be good for me. If I get my league form going again hopefully I’ll attract some interest.
“The manager has not said much but I believe he understands where I’m coming from. Dundee United are a feeder club – it has always been like that. Mark Wilson and David Goodwillie have used it to move on to bigger things and I want a bigger club too.”
Last year Dundee United rejected an offer of £100,000 from Blackpool for the centre-half, but Stephen Thompson rejected their offer.
