English Championship club Blackpool will make their move for Dundee United midfielder Jeando Fuchs in the January transfer window (Sun).

The 23-year-old was a target for Blackpool during the summer window but Dundee United’s valuation was too high for them to meet. They will have a second go in 2022 after pulling out of signing him in the final days of last month.

A Cameroon international, Fuchs has made a big impact at Dundee United since arriving last summer, making 33 appearances so far. But Blackpool will do their best to see if they can get him to swap one tangerine shirt for another.

United were busy on Deadline Day as one player left and another replaced him. Academy product Jamie Robson moved south to League One club Lincoln City while Scott McMann arrived from Hamilton to fill the left-back void at Tannadice.

Meanwhile, Calum Butcher has signed a contract extension which could keep him at Tannadice until 2024. The deal is signed until 2023 with the option of a further year, Butcher saying: “When the club came to me and said they wanted to extend my contract it was something I wanted to do straight away.

“I love it here and this is home to me now. There is still a lot I want to achieve with Dundee United. When you got out and cross that white line you want to do well for those people, and the support we have has been great and I want that to continue.”
