Former Rangers and Hearts striker David Templeton will train with Dundee United for the rest of the season in a bid to earn a contract for next term.
The 28-year-old was given access to the Tangerines’ facilities a couple of weeks back.
Since then, the forward has impressed Ray McKinnon with his attitude. He is, however, still a long way short of match fitness.
Their remains a chance he could be offered a short-term deal until the end of this season, though no definite decision has been taken on that.
Templeton, a former Scotland Under-21 international has been without a club since leaving Rangers in May 2016. He made 67 appearances, scoring 21 goals, in a four year spell at the Teddy Bears.
