Former Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald is training with boyhood club Dundee as he looks to get back playing football after a kidney transplant.

The midfielder most recently played for Fulham but missed the entirety of last season at Craven Cottage.

In March this year, he lifted the lid on his health problems, announcing he would undergo a kidney transplant in April.

McDonald's brother Fraser donated his kidney so the surgery could take place and after a period of recuperation, he was let go by Fulham in the summer.

He wrote on Instagram: "So after longer than expected in hospital following my kidney transplant; it’s been great to spend the past couple of weeks at home recovering and feeling better each day building up my fitness.

"I would like to give a huge thanks to everyone involved in my care at Guys’ Hospital, I really can’t thank them enough.

"A special thanks to my surgeon Prof Mamode who went above and beyond to ensure I had the best possible care at all times.

"And finally to the unsung hero of this all my brother Fraser, there are literally no words in this world to describe how grateful I am for this unbelievable gesture. You have given me a gift that I can never repay. I am forever thankful, I love you."

It's reported the deal is strictly to build fitness with no plans to sign McDonald, who would have been earning a Premier League salary at Fulham.

McDonald's last appearance came shortly after football returned from the pandemic in June last year. At his peak, he was a full Scotland international, earning five caps under Alex McLeish.

Since leaving Dundee in 2008, he has enjoyed a highly respectable career south of the border, racking up an extensive amount of football for Burnley, Wolves, Sheffield United and Fulham among others.

He managed 41 appearances in England's top flight while with Fulham.

McDonald played 65 times for Dundee in his last spell in Scotland, scoring 11 times.
