Last season, the Premier League pair were two reported suitors for Tannadice academy talent Scott Banks. That interest was eventually formalised by Crystal Palace, who officially signed the midfielder in January.
Now the Selhurst Park side are set to face off with Southampton again for a Tayside signing. Chalmers has taken to Premiership life like a duck to water, impressing in Micky Mellon’s youthful side.
It is said that both Palace and Southampton had scouts present at Tannadice during Dundee United’s recent 2-1 win over St Mirren.
Chalmers has shown his potential with trickery and raw talent so far this season. He’s versatile too, capable of playing on either flank, behind the striker in a number 10 role or as a centre forward.
United and Chalmers return to action this weekend when they take on Hamilton Accies in South Lanarkshire, looking to build on last week’s return to winning ways.
