Levein Gets More Money To Spend

Chairman Eddie Thompson has so much belief in Craig Levein's abilities as Dundee United manager - that he has agreed to give Levein an even larger January transfer budget.

Thompson agreed to make money available for Levein to sign several new players during the January transfer window, but has set aside additional club finances to allow the former Hearts and Leicester boss to strengthen his squad even further.

When Levein arrived at Tannadice, it looked like Dundee United were in serious danger of being relegated at the end of the season, but the turnaround under the new manager was almost instantaneous and the club jumped up several places in the SPL table.

Results in 2007 has been disappointing, with United yet to win a league match since the start of the year - but Levein is hoping that new signings Morgaro Gomis, Sean Dillon and striker Jon Daly will help change the clubs recent fortunes.

It's been reported that the original transfer budget was completely gone, by signing Gomis from Cowdenbeath, Dillon from Shelbourne and Daly from Hartlepool, but the Chairman has now given Levein more money to bring in even more new faces.

Levein was hoping that he would be able to bring in central defender on loan until the end of the season, but has struggled to find anyone with the experience required to help solve his defensive crisis.

Caley Thistle's Darren Dods will arrive in the summer, but that doesn't help for the rest of the current campaign.
