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

Lee Wilkie joins Dundee United

Defender Lee Wilkie has put pen-to-paper on a pay-as-you-play deal with Dundee United until the end of the season.

Wilkie, 26, played more than 100 games for city rivals Dundee before negotiating a release from his contract at the end of last season. This is the third-time he has attempted to return from cruciate ligament injuries.

Wilkie, who has played nine times for Scotland and scored one goal, said: 'Other teams were interested, but I wanted to stay in Dundee. It is a good move for me and the main thing at the moment is getting match-fit but this is the best shape I have been in and I feel strong.

'I will not be ready to play against Celtic on Saturday and need a few more reserve games before I can think of the first team.'

He has currently played three reserve games for the Arabs while training at Tannadice for the past eight weeks.

Arabs player-boss Craig Brewster said: 'He has impressed me during his trial and there are not many teams who don't want a fully-fit Lee Wilkie, because he is a top-class defender and has come on leaps and bounds here.'

If Wilkie impressive and his knee holds-up, he is expected to be offered a new deal at the end of the season. The other clubs thought to be interested in earning his signature included Raith Rovers and English-outfit Plymouth Argyle.
