McNamara is currently short of defensive options after Gavin Gunning suffered a knee injury which it is feared will rule him out for the rest of the season.

Former Hammarby player Tornstrand has linked up with the club for a training stint and McNamara has challenged the 23-year-old to impress.

"We'll have a wee look at Marcus. I haven't seen all that much of him and the difficult thing is trying to get a game to have a look at him in," the Dundee United boss said in the Daily Record.

"But I know he has played for Sweden's Under 21s.

"The transfer window is shut just now so there's not a lot we can do but we'll have a look.

"With Gavin Gunning getting injured we are a bit short at the back to say the least."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
