Dundee United in talks with 2 Premier League clubs as Hibs style investment in early s



The interest from Brighton and Brentford in potential partnerships with Dundee United marks a significant development in the Scottish football landscape. With the recent decision by the Scottish Football Association to allow minority shareholdings from outside investors, clubs like Dundee United are becoming more attractive targets for investment.

Brighton chairman Tony Bloom, already involved with Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium, is exploring the possibility of expanding his investment portfolio into Scotland. Similarly, Brentford owner Matthew Benham, who previously invested in Midtjylland in Denmark, is looking into potential opportunities in Scottish football.

Dundee United’s current position as leaders in the Scottish Championship adds to their appeal for investors. If they secure promotion to the top flight, it would enhance their attractiveness even further. Additionally, the presence of a thriving academy at Dundee United is appealing to English clubs, particularly given the restrictions on bringing in overseas players post-Brexit.

Furthermore, the relaxation of multi-club ownership rules by the Scottish Football Association is expected to facilitate more moves from overseas investors, opening up new avenues for growth and development within Scottish football.
