With two years remaining on his contract, Livingston will not be letting Dykes leave on the cheap, especially given just how important he was for the club last season.

Dykes, who can play anywhere across the front three, started his career in Australia before spending a brief stint with the Queen of the South academy, returning to Australia less than a year later.
