Marc McNulty has returned to Scotland for a third spell out on loan from Reading, this time with Dundee United.

The forward has joined Micky Mellon’s men on a season-long loan deal as his minutes at Reading looked limited this term. So far, he has made only two Carabao Cup cameos.

McNulty joined the Royals from Coventry City in the summer transfer window of 2018 but failed to settle at the Madjeski Stadium. He joined Hibs the following January, scoring nine in 17 appearances.

It wouldn’t win him a place at the Royals but it did attract Sunderland’s interest, Jack Ross signing him on loan last summer.

Again things didn’t go quite as planned but Ross moved for him again in the January of this year, this time as Hibs boss.

2019/20’s early curtailment meant his second spell at Hibs wasn’t quite as fruitful as the first and now McNulty returns north for another crack at Premiership football with Dundee United.
