Teenage midfielder Scott Allan has alerted the attentions of both Celtic and Rangers as well as Newcastle United, with all three clubs already believed to have made enquiries.

The 19-year-old is in the final year of his current deal at Tannadice and has sufficiently impressed for manager Peter Houston to offer him a new three-year contract.

Otherwise the Scotland Under-21 international would be permitted to speak to other clubs as early as January, although United are expected to seek compensation of around £400,000 should they lose his services.

Glasgow-born Allan only made his senior debut in July and has since featured in three SPL games whilst also representing his country earlier this week in a 0-0 draw with Bulgaria.
