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

McNamara pleased with deal

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara is pleased with the recent capture of defender Conor Townsend.

The 21-year-old full-back has come in on a year's loan from Hull City as part of the deal taking Scottish international Andrew Robertson to the KC Stadium.

"We're delighted to get Conor in. It gives us the chance to now work with him. He was on loan at Carlisle last season," McNamara told the Dundee Courier. "I put a few phone calls in and he comes very highly recommended. Hopefully he'll do a good job for us. It's a good opportunity for him.

"He had a lot of first-team games for Carlisle last season but this will be a step up for him. Now we're looking forward to seeing how he settles into the squad," he continued. "For me, it would have been ideal to have got someone in at left-back a couple of weeks ago so it would help our preparations for the new season."
