Dundee Utd boss Levein hopes to uncover more Kovacevic gems

Dundee United boss Craig Levein believes he can uncover more young gems like Swiss starlet Mihael Kovacevic in the summer market.

Levein said: "I brought Mihael in on a recommendation from someone I know in that part of the world and as soon as he arrived I could see potential there.

"He's played three very important games and done really well - even though he's a centre-half rather than a full-back.

"Although he's got a lot of the attributes a full-back requires, like being dogged, quick, strong and good on the ball, I see his long-term future back in the middle of defence.

"It pays to have contacts in many places and hopefully more of them will bear fruit."
