'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Houston completes defensive signing

Dundee United have signed Blackburn Rovers defender Gavin Gunning subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old rejected a number of other clubs including Aberdeen, Motherwell and Scunthorpe United in favour of a three-year deal at Tannadice.

"He is exactly the type of player we try to bring to Dundee United," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "He is young, athletic and hungry. He will do a good job for this club.

"He can play either left back or central defence and, having seen his performances last season, I know he can do a job in the SPL," he continued. "It was important that we moved to bring a central defender to the club and to get someone of Gavin's calibre is particularly exciting."
