Dundee United are set to open talks with Aalborg BK in an attempt to make Pavol Safranko a permanent signing, Courier Sport can reveal.
The Danish Superleague club will hope to recoup some of the substantial six-figure fee they paid to DAC Dunajska Streda before loaning the Slovakian international to United for the season.
But manager Robbie Neilson is keen to keep the striker beyond the end of the campaign and sporting director Tony Asghar will try and negotiate a deal.
The powerful forward is a fans’ favourite at Tannadice and has scored 11 goals for the Tangerines.
Meanwhile, Neilson confirmed that fellow frontman Osman Sow will be available for tomorrow’s clash with Partick Thistle.
“He’s fit,” the United boss. “He trained today and will be involved at the weekend.
“His calf tightened up on Thursday. We felt that it was better to leave him out (against Inverness Caley Thistle) as opposed to putting him on the bench and risk that he feels the injury after coming on.
“He’ll definitely be available on Saturday.
“I knew when I got him that it would take a bit of time to build him up. But he’s here for a period and there’s no doubting his ability.
“It’s about getting him on the pitch as quickly as we can without him getting injured.”
