Tangerines hopeful over striker

Tangerines hopeful over striker

Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson remains hopeful of attracting former striker David Goodwillie back to the club.

The Tangerines are continuing talks with Blackburn Rovers regarding a possible loan deal for the 24-year-old forward who has started only ten games since leaving in August 2011.

That follows last season's leading marksman Johnny Russell being on the verge of a move to fellow English Championship side Derby County for a fee of in the region of £750,000.

"We are sorry to lose a player of Johnny's calibre but trying to get David Goodwillie back is quite a move and shows our ambition to bring the right players in," Thompson told the Dundee Courier . "We are also chasing further exciting additions to the squad."
