Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has confirmed striker David Goodwillie won’t be having his loan from Blackburn Rovers extended.

The 24-year-old has scored six times in 22 games since returning to the club in July. He previously netted 40 goals in 136 appearances until securing a £2m move to Blackburn in August 2011.

“We haven’t extended it,” Thompson told BBC Radio Scotland. “It’s up to David where he goes from there. I don’t think it was necessarily to do with the budget, it’s much to do with what he’s done since he came back, it’s been a bit of a disappointment.

“Jackie [McNamara] and I will have a chat about what we want to do with the team,” Thompson continued. “He’s in no rush, as such, to just bring anybody in. There may be another player in, certainly before the window shuts, and we’re not looking to put anybody out in the transfer window.”
