Dundee United have clinched the signing of Lawrence Shankland, Courier Sport can confirm.

The former Ayr United striker has decided to join the Tangerines on a three-year deal after turning down offers from England.

It is a huge boost for the Tangerines after their interest in the former 23-year-old became public last week.

United knew they had a fight on their hands, with several clubs down south involved in discussions, but the man who tormented them last season, scoring four in one game, sees his future in Tayside.

The deal is now subject to a medical being completed.
