Crawford may stay put.
As a result he was linked with a host of clubs - including Cardiff - but the player has admitted he would be unhappy about uprooting his family, particularly for a move south of the border.
His agent Bill McMurdo has therefore held talks with Pars chairman John Yorkston with a view to him staying.
Crawford said: 'The financial thing is out of my hands, but it would be great to come to an agreement to play my football here.
'I like being here with my family about and the club knew that was a big pulling power last year.
'It's not just about the extra money - it's about the smiles on the kids' faces so I don't like the thought of uprooting them for a few extra pounds.
'It is sort of unsettling when you don't know where you will be playing next season, not just for me, but for my family too.
'My mother-in-law is first on the phone to ask if I am going to take her daughter and grandkids away.'
