Newcomer keen to progress

Latest signing Blair Spittal revealed Dundee United's ability in developing talent proved crucial in his choice of club.

Spittal was also tracked by neighbours Dundee before deciding to join his former Queen's Park team-mate Andrew Robertson at Tannadice.

"I spoke to Jackie and, although there were other options, I made up my mind quickly as this is where I feel I can continue to evolve as a footballer," Spittal told the Dundee Courier. "Seeing how well Andy Robertson has progressed also played a part in my decision.

"Dundee United allows you to develop regardless of age and the manager's vision for the club excites me," he added.

The eighteen-year-old attacking midfielder appeared 59 times and scored thirteen goals whilst at Queen's Park.
