The 23-year-old, who is currently on holiday, has one year remaining on his contract at Tannadice and had told the club he will not sign an extension.

He will reportedly undergo a medical at Derby's training ground on Monday.

"Dundee United can confirm that an undisclosed fee has been agreed with Derby County for Johnny Russell," said a statement on the SPL club's website.

"The transfer is expected to be concluded after the player has completed the necessary formalities early next week."

A Derby spokesman added: "We can confirm that a bid for Johnny Russell has been accepted.

"However, the club will be making no further comment until a deal is done."

Russell, Dundee United's top scorer last season with 20 goals in 38 games, missed two months of the campaign due to a broken leg, but returned for the final three matches.

The former Scotland U21 international has netted 46 goals in 120 appearances for the Tangerines.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
