The Scottish Sun reports today that Fulham coach Billy McKinlay is a contender for the Dundee United job after the Arabs pulled out of a proposed move for Bohemians boss Pat Fenlon.

I was initially very sceptical about Chris Coleman bringing in McKinlay, his former Blackburn team-mate, especially as a player when there were other options available. But the Scot has done an excellent job with the reserve team, offering some of the younger talent previously sidelined by Coleman a chance to shine. He has already been interviewed for the Tannadice post according to reports and McKinlay, who used to play for United before moving south, obviously still features on the shortlist.
