Dundee United head coach Thomas Courts says Jamie Robson and Lawrence Shankland are happy at Tannadice, amid interest from clubs like Sunderland.

Left-back Robson is said to be attracting interest from English League One duo Lincoln City and Sunderland. There’s also emerging interest from Belgium in star striker Shankland ahead of this weekend’s Scottish Premiership match with Rangers.

Courts says he will remain out of keeping tabs on potential bids ‘until the appropriate time’: “There’s nothing too much to update on that but I am aware there is interest in the two players.

“One’s an academy product (Robson) and the other has a strong affinity with the club and the fanbase, so both players are in a really good place just now.

“I think up until the point that the club are satisfied with any formal bids nothing will happen but I don’t know if there has been any as that’s out of my domain, I stay out of that until the appropriate time.”
