Former Dundee United ace Sam Stanton’s training stint with city rivals Dundee has come to an end.
The 26-year-old impressed Dark Blues boss James McPake – his former Hibs team-mate – during the two-week spell.
But Dee chiefs have decided not to offer a deal to Stanton, whose most recent club was US side Phoenix Rising.
Sam Stanton has Championship experience
Edinburgh-born Stanton helped Robbie Neilson’s United to the Championship title last term, though he left in January for Phoenix.
He played 22 times for the Tangerines in their league-winning season, scoring three times in his final five matches.
Earlier this month we revealed Dundee were planning a pre-contract swoop for United winger Paul McMullan.
The 24-year-old has struggled for game time under Micky Mellon in the Premiership this season.

When asked about McMullan two weeks ago, Dens gaffer McPake said: “Paul is a player I have admired for a while but I don’t like talking about other club’s players.
“He is a player I saw a lot of when he was on loan at St Mirren and Dunfermline.
“So I have been aware of him for a while and obviously he had a great season last year.
“But as I said, he is another club’s player, so that’s all I can really say on that.”
