Dundee United will look to add even more height to their squad as they attempt to complete their summer of signings.
To date the Tangerines have made nine signings and, although time is running out, gaffer Csaba Laszlo would like another four new faces through the doors at Tannadice by the time Saturday’s Betfred Cup campaign kicks off against Arbroath.
Right now it looks likely between one and three deals could be completed this week and it is understood United are in advanced talks with a central defender.
His identity still remains a secret but, if he signs up, fans can be certain he’ll be over six foot.
Already added to the squad have been ’keepers Matej Rakovan and Benjamin Siegrist, who stand at 6ft 5in and 6ft 4in respectively, and 6ft 3in centre-half Frederic Frans.
And among players already on the books, Scott Allardice and William Edjenguele, albeit his days at United look numbered, are also six-footers.
The aim is for more such giants and, as well as in central defence, added height up front is another priority.
Already competing for places up there are new arrivals Nicky Clark and Craig Curran as well as fit-again James Keatings.
However, whether or not it’s this week, they can expect completion from a striker who is strong in the air.
