Robbie Muirhead has left Dundee United after only seven starts in tangerine.

The 20-year-old arrived at Tannadice from Kilmarnock for a fee of about £150,000 at the end of the 2015 winter transfer window and scored twice in the final five games of the season, including a winner against Aberdeen.

But he was loaned to Partick Thistle by Jackie McNamara in August and failed to feature under new boss Mixu Paatelainen after returning in January.

A club statement read: “Dundee United Football Club and striker Robbie Muirhead have today parted company by mutual consent.

“The club thank Robbie for his service and wish him success for his future career.”

The Scotland youth international, a former Celtic target, made 16 appearances in all for United. He scored twice for Thistle, both in the same game against Killie.
