Dundee United winger Paul McMullan is set to win a new contract at Dundee United less than a year after he was told he was free to leave – according to a report.
The Evening Telegraph report that McMullan has earned a new contract after winning over manager Robbie Neilson.
The former Celtic youngster had fallen out of favour at Tannadice under Csaba Laszlo but stayed to fight for his place when Neilson took the reins.
McMullan has made 28 appearances as the Arabs have got themselves into third place in the Championship.
With it unlikely that they’ll catch leaders Ross County, United will need to hope they can navigate the playoffs and return to the Premiership.
Despite never making a first-team appearance for Celtic, McMullan enjoyed loan spells at Greenock Morton, Stenhousemuir, St Mirren and Dunfermline Athletic.
After leaving Celtic he signed a a two-year deal in 2017 with Dundee United and was a regular under Ray McKinnon after joining.
With the possibility of playing in the top-flight next season, McMullan will feel vindicated in his decision to stick with United and fight for his place.
If United do make the playoffs this season there’s a real possibility of facing city rivals Dundee for a place in the Premiership.
