Dundee United full-back Andrew Robertson wants to stay at Tannadice and continue his development, according to his agent.

"A number of EPL clubs have been in contact regarding Andy," Liam O'Donnell told reporters. "However, he will ignore the speculation and focus on continuing his development at Dundee United."

Robertson isn't the only one of The Terrors' talented crop of youngsters with eyes upon them.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez was spotted at this weekend's 2-2 draw with Hibernian and speculation surrounding futures of the youngsters was yet again heightened.

Dundee United manager Jackie McNmara isn't the biggest fan of the transfer window, commenting: "It's part of the game these days. You can't get away from it.....I'll be happy when the window shuts." 

The current crop of youngsters at Dundee United that Robertson is a part of included the talented centre-back John Souttar who, since breaking into the team last January, has been a maintained in central defence and the hotly-tipped attacking midfielder Ryan Gauld.

Gauld made his debut at 16 and has scored seven goals so far for the Terrors.

The youngster from Aberdeen has attracted the attention of managers all over the world with scouts from Real Madrid showing interest in the youngster who recently signed prolonged terms with the SPFL club on his 18th birthday.

"He is a fantastic talent who appreciates that Dundee United is the best place for him to develop at this time," said McNamara after he agreed the terms last month.

McNamara now hopes he can hang onto all of the youngsters that have done so well for the club this season who have floated steadily into the top four.
