Dundee United are one of four cinch Premiership teams said to be interested in Hull City forward James Scott (Sun).

Hearts, St Mirren and St Johnstone are the other clubs believed to be keen on bringing Scott back to Scotland from Hull City. The 20-year-old left Motherwell for the English Championship club in January 2020 but the Covid-19 pandemic and injury has disrupted his progress.

Scott could be set for a return north as Hull City look to build up his experience. He’s made just seven league starts and 18 sub appearances since the 2020 move and Dundee United may give him a chance.

Robbie Neilson’s Hearts are also thought to be strong contenders while St Johnstone and St Mirren are in the race. Hull City will play Championship football next season after earning promotion from League One, but minutes could be limited for the Motherwell youth academy product.
