Coll Donaldson is expected to be in Dundee United squad for Friday’s crunch clash with Hibs after returning home.
The central defender has come back to Scotland after spending a week and a half in Poland on trial with Bruk-Bet Termalica Nieciecz.
His proposed move to the Ekstraklasa club has collapsed due to Nieciecz wanting him on loan instead of a permanent deal.
The Tangerines weren’t interested in that proposal and instead urged Donaldson to come back to Tannadice and fight for a first-team place.
It is unclear whether or not the Poles will come back in for him in the summer but in the meantime he will remain part of United boss Ray McKinnon’s plans.
That means he will be considered for the showdown clash with the Championship-leading Hibees at Tannadice on Friday.
Also expected to be available for selection is Lewis Toshney, who has been sidelined for almost a month with a hamstring injury.
Toshney returned to full training at St Andrews yesterday so the signs are positive for him.
