Italian side Catania fail with their second bid to land Dundee United striker Johnny Russell.

Scottish Premier League side Dundee United have turned down an offer from Catania for Johnny Russell.

The bid, believed to be in the region of £515,000, is the second offer that the Serie A outfit have had rejected by United's board for the striker in the space of three weeks.

It is not known whether the Italians now intend to return with a third financial package for the Terrors.

However, should they make another bid, they will face contention for the 23-year-old's signature from Celtic, according to BBC Sport.

Russell, who is currently on the sidelines with a broken leg, has scored 20 goals this season.
