Peter Houston: Future set to be confirmed on Thursday

Houston and chairman Stephen Thompson are both expected to attend the event at Tannadice, which comes days after United gave their manager permission to speak to Blackpool.

There has been no word as to how those talks went - if they happened at all - and on Tuesday MK Dons boss Karl Robinson confirmed he had been approached by Blackpool.

United have said they wanted to renew their contract talks with Houston, whose deal expires at the end of the season.

A statement on United's official website on Tuesday said: "Directors of Dundee United today met with manager Peter Houston and his representative to discuss his contract situation.

"These discussions were amicable and will continue later this week."

Houston had earlier admitted he was surprised United had given Blackpool permission to speak to him because he was still talking to the club about a new deal.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
