David Moyes’ West Ham United reportedly want Smith in London for talks and Dundee United have already had several approaches over the centre-back from various clubs. He featured in a handful of games under previous head coach Micky Mellon and is involved in first-team plans under current boss Thomas Courts.

If someone like West Ham United want one of Scottish football’s brightest talents this summer, they will have to move imminently. Dundee United lost 2-0 to Hearts in their most recent league match ahead of the international break.

Courts said: “I’m disappointed by the result but not disappointed by the performance. Hearts probably had a little bit more control without really cutting us open. At half-time the boys still retained a strong belief that we could get back into the game but we found an inspired Craig Gordon in goal for Hearts.”
