Dundee United striker Johnny Russell is coming under increasing attention with a number of clubs ready to make a move before the transfer window closes later this week.

Everton boss David Moyes had already been credited with an interest in the 22-year-old who scored fifteen times last season, and his club had representation present at United’s weekend defeat to Kilmarnock.

Meanwhile, SPL champions Celtic could revive their interest after having a couple of previous offers turned down in January.
