Football: United back in for Greek.
The Australian-born midfielder spent a month at Tannadice earlier in the year but United's hopes of signing the player stalled on their failure to reach agreement with his club Aris Salonika.
The Tannadice club will try to have the player watched soon and, if they still rate him, there is every chance they will make another attempt to thrash out a deal.
United boss Sturrock, who was in Portugal last weekend watching a player, is reluctant to name any of his close-season signing targets but he is clearly not ruling out the European market.
He said last night: "There is certainly a shortage of available players in Scotland and we will be looking abroad when we try to bring people in over the summer.
"However, we will only be making moves for foreign players who have shown us that they can adapt to the Scottish game.''
Sturrock will clear the decks for his summer moves today when he talks to his entire squad.
He will hand frees to a number of players whose contracts are up and will spell out to others that they don't figure in his plans for next season.
