Fraser Fyvie set to turn down move to England for Dundee United

Fraser Fyvie set to turn down move to England for Dundee United

Dundee United appear to have beaten off competition from England to make former Scotland U/21 star Fraser Fyvie their fifth major signing of the summer.

And should they tie up the deal, number six is likely to follow soon.

Twenty-four-year-old Fyvie was available after failing to agree a deal with Hibs.

The attacking midfielder has also had offers from Coventry and Plymouth to pledge his future to the Tangerines.

He is set to join James Keatings, Billy King, Tam Scobbie and Paul McMullan as a new arrival over the past month or so.

And that list is set to grow soon. The manager has also been in talks with a striker he’s been tracking for some time now and the Tele understands that deal is close to completion.

Fyvie, though, might just be the biggest capture of the close-season.

Hibs wanted to keep him for their Premiership return but say they withdrew their offer of a three-year deal when he delayed signing.

That alerted Coventry and Plymouth but, after talks with Ray McKinnon, he considers Tannadice his best option, even though a move down south would have meant more money.

United believe they are getting the man who became Aberdeen’s youngest-ever player when he made his debut for them as a 16-year-old back in August 2009, just as his best years are approaching.

After three years in the Pittodrie first-team squad, he went south to Wigan in 2012.

Things did not work out for him there and, after loan spells at Yeovil and Shrewsbury, he headed back north to Hibs two years ago.
