Csaba still after new faces for Dundee United but Scobbie, Edjenguele, Keatings and McMullan could leave

Csaba still after new faces for Dundee United but Scobbie, Edjenguele, Keatings and McMullan could leave

Dundee United boss Csaba Laszlo still hopes to add to his squad before Friday night’s transfer deadline.

But the next few days could see more players heading out of Tannadice than coming in.

Despite making 13 summer signings, Csaba is eyeing a centre-half and a central midfielder to complete his business.

And also on the cards may be departures for a string of men who are now on the fringes of his team.

The likes of Tam Scobbie, William Edjenguele, James Keatings and Paul McMullan have not been regular starters and firm offers for them would likely see business done.

Experienced defender Scobbie has not featured at all since last term, Edjenguele hasn’t started since the opening league defeat against Dunfermline, Keatings’ only involvement was in the Betfred Cup against Alloa, while the Irn-Bru Cup apart, McMullan has been benched for over a month now.

In recent weeks, Keatings has been linked with a move back to Hamilton, while there’s been interest in McMullan from Partick Thistle.

If at least some of those fringe men move this week, it could leave time for Csaba to make additions.

“We are always looking to strengthen the squad, and I want players who are match ready,” he said.

“We have no interest in bringing in players who will be in the reserves or only there for the bench.

“Anyone who comes in must be able to help the team.

“If players leave this is good because this means we have good players who other clubs want and if it makes us happy we can allow this to happen.”

This afternoon saw United in Reserve League action against Kilmarnock at their St Andrews training base.
