Dundee United will not be signing Everton player Beni Baningime this summer, despite reported interest in the midfielder.

Baningime did not travel with Everton to their pre-season training camp in America as his future at the English Premier League club remains unclear. Dundee United and Hearts have been credited with an interest in bringing him to the cinch Premiership.

If Baningime is to leave Everton this summer, it won’t be to join Dundee United. Tannadice head coach Thomas Courts isn’t assessing the midfielder as a potential option.

Aged 22, Baningime has spent time on loan at Derby County and Wigan Athletic in recent seasons. He has progressed through the Everton academy and has made 12 appearances for the Merseyside club.

Courts’ reign as head coach of  ‘the Arabs’ started with four straight wins in the Premier Sports Cup group stages.
