Souttar has emerged as one of the most sought-after young players in Scottish football after making his debut as a 16-year-old for United.
Now 17, and a near first-team regular, United are in talks with Sunderland over a potential deal.
There are reportedly other English clubs keen on Souttar, but the managerless Black Cats are leading the chase and want a deal done with a view to him arriving on Wearside in January.
