The Eagles had a representative in the stands at Palmerston as United continued their romp to the Championship title. Shankland has been linked with several teams north and south of the border in recent weeks and months.
QPR’s Les Ferdinand had him watched during the Dundee derby at Tannadice just over a week ago.
Shankland interest from the likes of Crystal Palace won’t be entertained
Shankland failed to hit the net under the watchful eye of Palace. A Mark Connolly effort three minutes into the second half was all it took to secure United’s 14-point lead at the Championship summit.
With 19 goals in 18 Championship matches though, Shankland’s ability to find the net is undoubted. Celtic, Rangers, Norwich City, Nottingham Forest and another London side in Brentford have also been linked with the Scotland international.
Robbie Neilson is adamant though that offers for Shankland won’t be considered during this window. Shankland’s tied down at Tannadice until 2022.
It certainly seems as if Shankland has no shortage of suitors wanting to take him away from Tayside.
