The winger joined Dundee United in the summer of 2011 and established himself as one of the better players in the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic signed Mackay-Steven from United in the January transfer window for a fee of £250,000, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

Joining County on a season-long loan deal would be a good move for Mackay-Steven, who is a talented young winger and does have a bright future.
