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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
