Dundee United are currently in discussions with Blackburn Rovers for defender Gavin Gunning.

The Dublin-born 20-year-old appeared on loan for Motherwell last season and has been capped at all levels by the Republic of Ireland up to Under-21.

Meanwhile, United manager Peter Houston is also said to be keen on his Blackburn team-mate Grant Hanley, although his chances of bringing him to Tannadice appear rather more remote.

Gunning managed fourteen appearances for Motherwell last term after joining them in January.
