English Premier League club West Ham United will continue to monitor Dundee United’s Kerr Smith ahead of the winter transfer window (TWHW).

West Ham United were linked with a move for the 16-year-old in the summer transfer window and wanted him in London for talks. But a move did not come to fruition. However, the side managed by David Moyes will monitor the situation closely. Smith made his Scottish Premiership debut under Micky Mellon last season.

He is also in the plans of new head coach Thomas Courts. Meanwhile, Dundee United goalkeeper Trevor Carson was happy to deny former teammate Richard Tait the chance to score against him. The pair played together at Motherwell and Carson’s save ensured Dundee United picked up a point in a 0-0 draw with St Mirren on Saturday.

Carson said: “It was nice to make a contribution, I didn’t have a lot to do. The guys in front of me were great and kept them out. Richard would have been as surprised as me if he’d scored as he’s not a renowned goalscorer!

 

“I know a few of the St Mirren boys and it’s always nice to come up against your mates – but even better to get a clean sheet. I got a strong right hand to it, it was just pure reaction. Every keeper will tell you there’s nothing worse than when you’re not involved. You’re on edge a bit.”
