Ryan Edwards is set to agree a contract extension with Dundee United.
The 27-year-old signed a two-year deal with the Tangerines last summer – but had attracted interest from Wigan Athletic, Fleetwood Town and former United boss Micky Mellon’s Tranmere Rovers.
Depsite the big defender’s appearance on English clubs’ radars, Tannadice head coach Tam Courts revealed on Monday that informal discussions between Edwards and the Tangerines were “always happening”.
Courier Sport understands they are now set to bear fruit, with the 6’5″ Englishman ready to extend his stay at United.
Edwards missed United’s opening Premier Sports Cup clash against Kelty Hearts, having joined pre-season training late following a Covid-19 scare.
But he is expected to be available for Wednesday night’s meeting with Elgin City, followed by Saturday’s contest against Arbroath.
