United sign defender

Dundee United have confirmed defender Brian McLean as their latest signing at Tannadice.

The 27-year-old was released by Preston North End last week after originally beginning his career with Rangers.

He then had spells at Motherwell and Falkirk until heading south to join Preston last year. In total he has more than 150 senior career appearances and eleven goals.

"There are good things happening here and if I can play my part in future success I will be delighted," McLean told United's official website."I will look forward to the European games but it really is a privilege to join this fantastic club."

Tangerines boss Peter Houston added: "He is a good defender, someone who also likes to play football and alongside the other defenders we currently have, he will become an integral part of our squad.

"Although he is being brought in here as a defender, he is also capable of scoring a few goals and should add to our aerial threat in the opposition penalty area."
