Finnish Internationalist Ilmari Niskanen looks set to make his Dundee United debut this weekend after his work permit was finally cleared.
The 23-year-old winger signed for the Tangerines on August 20 after a spell at FC Ingolstadt 04 in Bundesliga 2.
However, delays due to international clearance meant he was unable to take to the field.
