Thomas Mikkelsen

Dundee United have swooped to bring striker Thomas Mikkelsen back to Tannadice.

And the 27-year-old could even be fixed up in time to face Alloa in the Scottish Cup tomorrow.

Mikkelsen spent the second half of last season in tangerine after signing a loan deal from Odense.

He hit seven goals, including the winner in the Challenge Cup final against St Mirren at Fir Park in March.

United then tried to make his move permanent, but were pipped by Ross County.
