The likes of Everton and Tottenham were said to be keen on luring Thompson south of the border, whilst Rangers have also been keeping tabs on his progress.
However, the Scottish international is to have talks with new United chairman Eddie Thompson over his future and he admits he wants to stay on Tayside.
"I'll speak to the chairman and we'll just see what happens," he said.
"We had a discussion last week and it went very well so I'll know more after Thursday."
Thompson admitted that whether caretaker boss Paul Hegarty gains the job permanently, does not have a bearing on his own future.
"It's not a concern who the manager is going to be," he said.
"If I want to play for Dundee United then I want to play for them regardless of who the manager is.
"But obviously I want Paul and Maurice Malpas to get the job.
"I'm just happy playing with United and at the minute my aim is to get them up the league and I'll do everything I can to achieve that."
