Transfer Talk

So apparently a bid of around £60k has gone in for Jim O'Brien of Celtic. The out of contract player has been on trial with Motherwell recently but it is thought that gaffer Craig Levein is keen to bring the young winger back to Tannadice, where he spent the second half of last season on loan.

I'm never one to question the judgement of Levein, but I would be leaving this one well alone. From what I seen of him last season, he offered us little. I'm sure other United fans share this view.

To our next target, it is rumoured that we have rekindled our interest in Ranger Forward Alan Gow. Rangers have told the forward, who has made a massive 2 appearance since signing last year, that he can move for free should he find a suitable club.

The club are also set to pay off his contract in full, meaning Gow would be more willing to take a wage cut. United face competition from Hearts for his signature.

If either of these rumours/stories are true, my choice would be Gow. But hey, we might end up with both!
