Another 1st Team Player Set To Leave
(Written by Tactful Sheik)
There is speculation that Dundee United defender Lee Mair is set to sign a pre-contract agreement with Aberdeen, which will see him definately leaving Tannadice in the summer.
Lee Mair is one of several 1st team players out of contract in the summer, with Craig Levein suggesting he has no plans to renew his deal and was keen for the Aberdeen born defender to return to his home city.
With Caley Thistle's Darren Dods arriving at United in June and Craig Levein hoping to bring in several more new faces, Mair would have become surplus-to-requirements next season if he'd stayed on at the club anyway.
The 26-year-old 6ft defender hasnt played a 1st team match for Dundee United since the 3-2 Scottish Cup victory over Saint Mirren at Tannadice on the 16th of January.
Mair joined Tannadice in January 2005, after spells at Stockport, Falkirk East Fife and United's local rivals Dundee.
"Lee is out of contract at the end of the season and if Aberdeen are interested in him then good luck to the boy," said United's assistant boss Peter Houston.
"We have signed Darren Dods and big Lee Wilkie is doing really well for us just now."
"Young Garry Kenneth and David McCracken have been impressive, too, so Lee hasn't been able to get back in."
"He's been an excellent professional since I've been here and if he does get fixed up with Aberdeen we'll wish him all the best."
"It's been hard for Lee because Lee Wilkie has come in and done well while he was injured and we've also fixed up Darren Dods ahead of next season."
