Sean William Dundee (born 7 December 1972 in Durban) is a South African-born former football player holding a German passport.

The striker began his football career in South Africa with local team Bayview Durban and D'Alberton Callies Durban, before he moved to Germany and Stuttgarter Kickers in 1992. After spending the 1994 95 season with TSF Ditzingen he signed with Bundesliga team Karlsruher SC.

Developing to become one of the ace goalscorers in the German league, he scored 16 goals in 1995 96 and 17 goals in 1996 97. Looking in retrospect he scored 61 goals in 162 Bundesliga games. Dundee went as far as switching nationality to Germany, but was however never used by the national team, although he did manage a solitary appearance at "B" level.

In July 1998, he joined FA Premier League club Liverpool for £2million, as joint managers Gerard Houllier and Roy Evans needed an extra striker to cover for the injured Robbie Fowler, who was unavailable until the winter. However, Dundee failed to break up the partnership of Karl-Heinz Riedle and Michael Owen during the first quarter of the season, and when Fowler returned from injury his chances of first team action were looking even more remote. He only played three games in the league for Liverpool (all of them as a substitute during the final weeks of the campaign as their bid for a UEFA Cup place slipped away) and after the end of the season he returned to Germany in a £1million move to VfB Stuttgart.

Still struggling to regain his old form, he moved to Austrian team Austria Wien in 2003. He failed to score in 18 games and before returning to KSC in 2004. Starting with the season 2006 07 he has signed a two years contract with the team of Kickers Offenbach. Before finishing the contract term he moved back to Stuttgarter Kickers in January 2007.

After leaving his German club he signed for AmaZulu in his native Durban on 17 August 2008.
