Scott had been on the radar of Stevie Crawford for a couple of seasons, so we are all really pleased that we have managed to secure his services for the rest of this season.

After his outstanding performances for Crystal Palace’s U23 team, this season, Scott had numerous clubs north and south of the border who were interested in him. So, it is pleasing to see that he felt moving to East End Park was the right environment for the next stage in his development.

Scott comes from Linlithgow and was signed by Dundee United in 2013 from Linlithgow Rose Boys Club. As an attacking midfielder he was top scorer for United’s under 17s and he is a graduate of the SFA Performance Programme at Graeme High School in Falkirk.

He signed his first professional contract with the Tannadice club in 2018 and in February the following year, Banks joined Clyde on loan for the rest of the 2018–19 season, quickly becoming a "fans` favourite" during his 15 appearances.

He scored his first senior goal at Clyde and it was certainly one many will remember as he cut inside and rifled an unstoppable 30 yard drive into the top corner against Peterhead. That strike won him the club’s goal of the season award.

He was also man of the match against Annan Athletic in the second leg play off match that secured Clyde`s promotion, 2-1 on aggregate, from League Two.

After impressing manager Robbie Neilson in pre-season matches, Banks made his Dundee United debut as a substitute against Hearts in the Betfred Cup in July 2019.

Scott made four appearances for Dundee United before signing a three year contract at Crystal Palace in January last year. He was quickly loaned out Alloa Athletic until the end of the 2019/20 season. He had made four appearances for the Wasps before the season was brought to a premature end due to the Covid pandemic.
