It seems that Dundee United’s Nicky Clark won’t be following in the footsteps of teammate Paul McMullan. It was reported on Wednesday that Dundee were considering a move for Clark.
He was in a similar situation to McMullan, coming into the last six months of his contract. However, whereas McMullan agreed to sign for Dundee on a pre-contract agreement, Clark is set to stay put at Tannadice.
Other Premiership sides were interested
Now reports say that the 29-year-old will sign a new two-year deal with Dundee United this week. The reported goes on to say that not only were Dundee interested in signing the player, but other Premiership sides were as well.
It will be a relief for Dundee United fans that Clark is set to stay with the club. For a start, he is the club’s top scorer this season with 10 goals.
A relief for fans
It would not have been easy replacing that number of goals halfway through the season. Fans will also be relieved that the player is not heading across the road to Dens Park.
Losing two players in under a week to your city rivals would not have been easy to deal with. However, it seems that Clark is set to stay with United for the next few years. Now the player can concentrate on scoring the goals that will secure United a top six finish.
If Clark can score another 10 goals this season then Dundee United are more than capable of finishing in the top six, and Clark’s contract extension will have been a great success.
