Jackie McNamara: Looking to bring reinforcements into Dundee United

It has already been a summer of change at Tannadice, with the likes of Willo Flood, Jon Daly and Barry Douglas having moved on.

Bolstering the ranks ahead of the 2013/14 campaign is now a top priority for McNamara, who has been linked with approaches for several players - including Blackburn Rovers striker, and former Terrors favourite, David Goodwillie.

McNamara is eager to get fresh faces on board as quickly as possible, to give them a full pre-season, and says he is confident additions will be made sooner rather than later.

He said in the Daily Record: "There should be progress this week.

"I'm looking for a striker and a left-back and I'm expecting to have fixed up more new faces by the time the players report for pre-season.

"I've spoken to a left-back who I want on trial and it could be tied up soon."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
