At least 3 of Dundee United`s 1st team squad are definitely leaving in the summer, as manager Craig Levein attempts to re-build ahead of next season.

It`s common knowledge that defender David McCracken is on his way out, with Levein refusing to re-consider the players Tannadice future after several impressive performances in recent months.

However, it`s recently been confirmed that Lee Mair has agreed terms with Aberdeen and has signed a pre-contractual agreement that will see him head to Pittodrie at the end of the current campaign.

‘All the paperwork is done and he will be at Pittodrie for pre-season training and the club’s summer trip to Egypt,’ said Mair`s agent Charlie Duddy.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Derek Stillie is also planning on leaving Tannadice to pursue his legal career.

Stillie plans to quit full-time football, so that he can move to London to resume his legal studies.

The 33-year old is currently Dundee United`s 1st choice keeper and Craig Levein will have to act fast to find a replacement – otherwise United will have to rely upon inexperienced 21-year-old Ewan McLean next season.
