Dundee United star Jeando Fuchs has claimed three English clubs have been in contact over a move this summer when his Tannadice contract ends as he hinted he is likely to leave Scotland at the end of the season.

According to the Arabs star Blackpool, Peterborough and Wigan have all sounded him out over a possible move with Celtic, Rangers and Stuttgart also named by the 24-year-old as clubs who have shown interest in signing him.

Dundee United boss Thomas Courts is unlikely to want to lose the midfielder who has impressed in their push for a top six place this season but Fuchs admits a perceived lack of interest in Scottish football in France – who he represented at youth level and won the under-19 Euros – has left him little option to return there in the summer.

The Tannadice star told Foot Mercato: “I am at the end of my contract in May.

“I’m waiting to see something concrete and see if I have a choice to make at that time. I am not in a hurry.  We are well placed, we are having a good season. I don’t want to jump into another quagmire and regret it again afterwards.

“There has been contact with Blackpool, Peterborough and Wigan. Stuttgart have taken information since the summer.  here has been contact from Celtic and Rangers as well, but nothing more. A Premier League club as well. England would be good.

“There is interest [from French clubs], but not really concrete contacts. I don’t really feel like people in France are looking at Scotland. But I’m not against the idea of going back. It all depends on the project.”
