Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland has insisted he is going nowhere as the January transfer approaches its end.
The Tangerines’ striker has been linked with numerous clubs but has decided that Tannadice is the best place for him for now.
That should make for a more relaxing deadline day for United fans and boss Robbie Neilson tomorrow.
Shankland said: “It is flattering knowing that there is interest from big clubs in England and Scotland.
“It is great to hear and read but I genuinely believe that Dundee United is the best place for me at this stage in my career.
“United are a team on the up and why would I want to leave the club just now?
“I came here to get Dundee United back into the Premiership and that is what I plan to do.
“I know how desperate everybody is to get the club back in the Premiership and it would have been wrong for me to even think about leaving just now.
“The fans and everybody at the club have waited long enough to get back to the Premiership and I want to be part of a Dundee United squad that takes this club back where they belong.”
