Talented duo Ryan Gauld and John Souttar have extended their Dundee United contracts until January 2016.

Both are products of the club’s youth system at Tannadice and have appeared at senior level this season.

Seventeen-year-old Gauld actually made his first-team bow late last term while Souttar recently became United’s youngest-ever player at the age of just sixteen when facing Aberdeen earlier this month.

“We are delighted that both these young stars have signed up for three years,” chairman Stephen Thompson told BBC Scotland. “Ryan and John are the future of Dundee United. They are two of the most exciting talents in the Scottish game and, as a club, we must continue to produce this level of talent.”
