Dundee United’s relegation will lead to many players seeking new opportunities elsewhere this summer and American midfielder Ian Harkes is one of them.
Harkes is one of six players who will leave Dundee United this June following the expiration of their contracts, the club announced Tuesday. The Tangerines suffered relegation to the Scottish Championship on Sunday following a 3-2 Premiership defeat to Motherwell, their fifth of the playoff schedule.
Harkes made 31 combined league appearances for Dundee United this season, scoring three goals and adding two assists. The 28-year-old joined Dundee United in 2019, helping the Scottish club earn promotion later that campaign.
In total, Harkes registered 12 goals and 12 assists in 165 combined appearances for Dundee United, logging over 12,300 minutes for the club. He previously came through the DC United academy before playing collegiately at Wake Forest University
Harkes played two seasons with DC United before making the move to Scotland.
