However, it looks like Vancouver won the race for his signing and managed to lure him to Canada.

Gauld started his career on the books at Dundee United and played there with Andy Robertson.

He broke into their first team as a youngster and scored nine goals in 50 games to earn a transfer to Sporting Lisbon in 2014.

Gauld was a key player for Sporting’s B squad, but only made five appearances for their senior squad as they decided to loan him to Vitoria, Aves, Farense and Hibernian to gain more experience.

Farense attracted him permanently in 2019 and he helped them get promoted to the second tier in his first full season there.
