Peter Houston will leave his post as Dundee United manager at the end of the season, the Scottish Premier League club have announced.

Houston, 54, had been negotiating a contract extension but has decided not to accept the reduced terms proposed by the club.

He was recently granted permission to speak to English second-tier side Blackpool about their managerial vacancy, but is not among the favourites to land the role.

United are currently eighth in the 12-team Scottish top flight.
