As per a report from the Dundee Evening Telegraph, Dundee United are interested in recruiting the 20-year-old ahead of the new season.

Initial reports emerged from Football League World on Wednesday morning stating that the Tangerines were among multiple sides eyeing up a move for Scott. Hearts, St. Mirren and St. Johnstone are also rumoured to be eyeing up a move for the young striker this summer.

With the Scottish Premiership quartet keen, it will be interesting to see if anything serious materialises in the coming months.

Injury problems have hindered Scott’s time with the Tigers somewhat.

Across all competitions, the Glasgow-born forward has played 34 times for Hull. In the process, he has chipped in with four goals and two assists.
