Duo extend as midfielder arrives

Dundee United have extended the contracts of Paul Paton and Aidan Connolly.

Northern Ireland international Paton, 27, has agreed to stay until the summer of 2017, while Connolly, 18, remains through to at least 2016.

Meanwhile, the Tangerines have snapped up another midfielder, seventeen-year-old Scott Lochhead, following his release by Celtic.
