DUNDEE UNITED say they haven’t had any enquiries from Leeds United regarding left-back Barry Douglas.

The 21-year-old has reportedly come under the radar of United, but according to Tayside sources, the Terrors say haven’t received any interest in the defender or from elsewhere regarding any of their leading players such as Craig Conway and David Goodwillie.

Nor are they are interested in fielding enquiries, with the club’s policy being that they will only consider serious bids.

Douglas, handed a crack in the SPL at Tannadice after moving from Queen’s Park on a three-year-deal last summer, had an impressive first season at the club.

Brought in more as a long-term signing, Douglas – top-scorer at left-back for Queen’s Park in 2009-10 – featured for spells in left midfield last term.

This is largely due to the form of regular left-back Paul Dixon, thought to be on the verge of the full Scotland squad.

Meanwhile, Leeds say they are still considering options regarding a possible pre-season tour this summer – and are expected to make an announcement next week.

As yet no plans have been finalised, with fans urged not to book anything based on speculative reports.

So far, the club have announced three full first-team friendlies on English soil, starting off with a trip to Rochdale on Tuesday, July 19.

United then visit Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, July 23, while they host Newcastle United at Elland Road on Sunday, July 31.
