Scott McMann will not be staying at Dundee United for their return to the Premiership despite being an ever-present in their Championship winning side.

The Tannadice side have released an end-of-season squad update and the 27-year-old former Hamilton left-back is the most notable name on the list of those who will not be retained by Jim Goodwin.

McMann, who started 35 of United’s 36 league matches, said after Friday night’s campaign-concluding victory over Partick Thistle that he would “100 per cent” want to extend his contract with the Tayside club.

“Absolutely, I would love to stay here,” he said. “I’ve really enjoyed my time at this club, and I want that to continue.”

However, his near-three-year stint at United is over after it was announced that he will depart along with Sadat Anaku, Mark Birighitti, Layton Bisland, Logan Chalmers, Flynn Duffy, Declan Glass, Archie Meekison, Chris Mochrie, Craig Moore and David Wotherspoon.

On-loan quartet Jack Walton, Jordan Tillson, Alex Greive and Sam McClelland have also left to return to their parent clubs, Luton, Ross County, St Mirren and St Johnstone respectively.

“We would like to place on record our gratitude to all players moving on to pastures new for their services in tangerine, and extend our best wishes for their future endeavours,” said a United statement.

“The club will communicate further updates regarding the playing squad in due course.”
