Houston in Blackpool talks
Dundee United have given permission for manager Peter Houston to talk to Blackpool over their current managerial vacancy.
The Seasiders are in need of a replacement following Michael Appleton leaving the club for Blackburn Rovers after only 65 days in charge.
Bradford City's Phil Parkinson has already turned down an approach over a possible move to Bloomfield Road.
Houston has been in charge at Tannadice since 2010 and won the Scottish Cup in his first season while also managing three top-four finishes in the SPL.
But his current deal ends in May and the 54-year-old was still waiting on further developments over extending his stay.
