Dundee United are expected to make their sixth signing of the summer in the shape of centre-back Frederic Frans.

The former Partick Thistle defender has been the subject of a three-way bid between the Tangerines, the Jags and Ross County.

However, United are expected to win that race.

The 29-year-old left Firhill in 2016 to return to his native Belgium as captain of his former youth team Lierse SK.

This summer he’s a free agent, however, after the Belgian club went bankrupt.

And he is expected to arrive at Tannadice over the coming days to try to help the Tangerines to promotion back to the Premiership next season.
