Dundee United are set to complete the signing of St. Mirren’s Cammy Smith – according to a report.
The Evening Telegraph claim they could even have the forward on board by this weekend.
According to the report, the deal could have been done earlier but was held up by St. Mirren’s board rubber-stamping it.
Bringing Smith in will give Robbie Neilson’s side a potent attacking threat once compared to Dennis Bergkamp.
Smith spent time on loan at Tannadice in 2016 and a return would give him a fresh start after falling out of favour in Paisley.
Comfortable in midfield as well as attack, he’ll be a good addition to United’s squad.
Losing striker Craig Curran to rivals Dundee also opens up a spot for Neilson to fill in his squad.
There seems to be a bit more competition for places now too following Neilson’s rant following the recent defeat by Alloa.
With Ross County doing well and Ayr playing out of their skin, United need to be much more consistent to challenge for the title.
The Arabs currently sit third in the Championship but have been inconsistent throughout.
Recent additions should help that and Smith signing is another big step in the right direction.
Saturday’s home clash with Dunfermline would be the perfect chance to make a mark on his return to Tannadice.
