Dundee United are preparing a move for Liverpool left-back Tony Gallacher if a deal which sees Jamie Robson leave Tannadice is completed (Sun).

The Liverpool talent is being lined up as a replacement for Robson, who is close to securing a move to English League One side Lincoln City from the Scottish Premiership. Gallacher left Falkirk in 2018 as a highly-rated prospect and his current English Premier League club wanted in on his potential.

He has not been able to make a breakthrough at Liverpool but has spent time out on loan in the MLS with Toronto FC. Gallacher has made one senior appearance for the Anfield club and it netted Falkirk a small fee due to a clause in Gallacher’s 2018 deal.

United famously handed Liverpool defender and Scotland captain Andy Robertson his chance at professional level and Gallacher could follow on a similar path. He is available  to teams in the UK with senior minutes likely to be limited at Anfield.

Gallacher was close to a switch to Sunderland earlier this summer but the season-long loan deal fell through at the final hurdle. Lincoln came in with an offer for Robson on Monday and that deal is set to be completed on Deadline Day, opening the door for Gallacher’s Tayside arrival.
