Fenlon may be forced to quit Bohs for Dundee

PAT FENLON may yet seal his move to Dundee United -- that's if he quits as manager of Bohemians.

Fenlon's move to the Scottish Premier League side fell through last night after representatives from both clubs failed to agree a compensation package.

It is thought that Bohemians refused to budge from their cash demands, thought to be in the region of the $280,000.

Fenlon is alleged to be furious with the Phibsborough club for their stance, which has now forced the Terrors to look elsewhere for a replacement for Craig Levein, who left Tannadice Park to take over as Scotland manager.

It is already believed that two former Republic of Ireland internationals -- Gary Breen and Jason McAteer -- have signalled their interest in replacing Fenlon, should the Dubliner quit Dalymount Park.

But the Gypsies boss, who has won back-to-back titles with Bohs as well as FAI Cup and League Cup title in the last two seasons, will mull over his future before making a decision.

Part of Fenlon's frustration with Bohemians is that the 40-year-old is owed bonuses by the cash-strapped Irish champions, and he hoped that they would lower their demands due to this.

However, an offer of $100,000 from Dundee United was turned down forcing the SPL side to end talks, but chairman Andy Thompson said: "If circumstances were to change, we would review them."
