'If It's Football, It's Vital'

De Vries wants Dundee United move

Former Hearts striker Mark de Vries has admitted he would love to join old boss Craig Levein at Dundee United.

The 31-year-old Dutch giant, who is currently on-loan in his homeland from Leicester City, said he would be more than willing to move to Tannadice if he was wanted.

De Vries, who stands at 6ft4in, spent two-and-a-half years with Levein at Hearts before following his boss to Leicester - and claims his time at Tynecastle was the most enjoyable of his career.

He said: 'If the gaffer was wanting to sign me I would be more than willing to go to Dundee United. I'm not going to lie - in the four years I worked under him I never once turned up to training thinking, 'I'm not going to play for this man'.

'I obviously know him very well and I think the football he is going to play at Dundee United will work. The style of football he plays suits me as well so I would like to play under him again.'

While de Vries has another 18 months on his contract, he is confident that he wouldn't have a problem as Leicester 'probably want to get me off the wage bill'.
