Dundee United can confirm the transfer of midfielder Scott Banks to English Premiership side Crystal Palace.

18-year-old Scott came through the Dundee United Youth Academy and made his debut at the start of the 2019/20 season coming off the bench against Hearts in the Betfred Cup tie away to Hearts.

Sporting Director Tony Asghar said, “Everyone here wishes Scott all the best for his future career. He is someone who has developed in our Academy from an early age and we made him a good offer to remain and continue his development at United.

"It is clear that a move to an English Premier League club has proved very attractive for Scott, his family, and his representatives to turn down. I believe Scott has the ability to become a top talent in football and hope that he continues to develop to the level we believe he could have progressed to had he chosen to remain at Dundee United.“
