De Vries wants Dundee United move

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'.
