Tangerines face wait on strikers

Tangerines face wait on strikers

Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson says his club must just wait over a final decision from striker Johnny Russell.

Both a transfer fee and personal terms have already been agreed with English Championship side Derby County for the 23-year-old who is due for a medical at Pride Park on Monday.

However, ongoing rumours have persisted of Scottish champions Celtic possibly reviving their earlier interest and hijacking the deal at the eleventh hour.

"We have agreed a fee with Derby, they have agreed terms with Johnny and he is due there on Monday to have a look around and a medical ... and then decide," Thompson told the Dundee Courier. "Nothing is ever totally done until it's all signed but we have pretty much done everything we have to do. If it goes through, it will keep the bank happy."

Meanwhile, the Tangerines face a similar wait to determine is former striker David Goodwillie will complete a loan return to the club from Blackburn Rovers.

"If David is going to go anywhere in Scotland it would be here but I am still not sure whether that will happen or not," Thompson admitted. "We have pushed the boat out for it but we will just have to wait and see how it goes."
