DUNDEE UNITED SWOOP FOR YOUNG CELT

0

CELTIC youngster Paul McMullan has agreed a two-year deal with Dundee United.

The 21-year-old winger joined the Hoops from school and was loaned to Stenhousemuir in January 2015.
McMullan also had temporary stints at St Mirren and Morton before spending last season at Dunfermline.
The youngster has represented Scotland from Under-16 to Under-21 level.

McMullan told the official Dundee United website: “I was aware of United’s interest from the end of the season. It was a case of coming back from holiday and waiting for the clubs agreeing on the deal.

“The manager, Ray McKinnon, spoke to me and explained how he wanted me to play and what my role would be and it appealed to me. I see this as a fantastic opportunity for me to progress my career at a great club.

“I would like to think the United fans will enjoy my style of play as I am very direct and enjoying creating chances.

“I am looking forward to doing all I can to help the club secure promotion this season.”

Boss McKinnon added: “Paul is an excellent attacking option and once I realised that he might be available, I worked quickly to make it happen.

“It is important that we bring in the right players to ensure a balance within the squad and this signing gives us greater options out wide.

”Paul has incredible pace and will drive at defenders. He gives us another exciting attacking option, and I am delighted to bring him to Tannadice.”

United, who lost out in last season’s Premiership play-off final to Hamilton Accies, kick off their Championship campaign with a trip to relegated Inverness.
