Dundee United Confirm Gomis Signing

Dundee United Confirm Gomis Signing


HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

The start of 2007 means that the January transfer window is now upon us- but before most supporters had even risen from their beds after a night of celebrating, Dundee United had already made their first signing.

Dundee United and Cowdenbeath agreed a "nominal" fee for French midfielder Morgaro Gomis and he was signed up first thing in the morning, so that he could make his debut against Falkirk in the afternoon.

Coming on as a substitute for Mark Kerr in the 78th minute of the match, the 21-year-old was on the losing side in a humiliating 5-1 defeat, but wasn't really able to change the outcome of the match after coming on when United were already 4-1 down.

Gomis - who has had played with Barnet, Montpellier and spent time in the Chelsea youth side - had a 2week trial with Dundee United in November to give Craig Levein a chance to see the player up close, but has now put pen to paper on a 2 1/2 year deal to play for Craig Levein's side.

"There are one or two wee things I saw in his game that makes me think he has got a chance," said Levein, when asked if Gomis would be considered part of his 1st team squad.

Gomis is the 2nd player to sign a deal with Dundee United this week, after 19-year-old Gregg Burnett signed a short-term extension to his contract, which will keep him at Tannadice until May 2007.

Meanwhile, Cowdenbeath chairman Gordon McDougall was happy at completing the deal with Dundee United for Gomis.

"This represents a good piece of business for Cowdenbeath but also a fantastic opportunity for Morgaro," said McDougall.

"He joined us for free in the summer and could have walked away at the end of the season. He has great ability and if anybody can take him to the next level it is Craig Levein."
