Polish Goalie Signs For Dundee Utd

Dundee United have completed the signing of Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska and expect the 24-year-old to make his club debut in the per-season friendly against Barcelona in July.

Zaluska has signed a 2-year deal, after passing a medical at Tannadice on Wednesday night, which makes him the club`s 1st choice keeper after Derek Stillie`s departure

Derek Stillie quit full-time football with Dundee United earlier this month, to allow him to move down to London to continue his legal studies.

"Dundee United is a club which is well known in Europe and one with a great tradition and the Barcelona match is a very exciting prospect for me," admitted Zaluska.

"I feel I can help United to get back challenging in the top half of the league in Scotland but also, perhaps, again in Europe."

"I believe Dundee United will be higher in the league next season than we finished this time, and we will be looking to make it to the top six because there are good players here."

"Since I knew I was coming to Dundee United, I have been working on my English and every day I will be working to make it better."

"For a goalkeeper you need to know right, left, centre and goalkeeper`s ball and these words I already know, so I am OK in the team."

"Why I want to learn more is so that I can speak to people here and do interviews and know what people are saying."

"I believe there are approximately 10,000 Polish people living in or near Dundee and it would be nice to see some in the crowd next season," continued Zaluska.

Meanwhile, manager Craig Levein is hopefully that the former Legia Warsaw keeper will impress as much on the football pitch, as the player has impressed him with his hunger and determination to succeed.

"Lukasz will be our number one goalie and I am delighted to get someone who comes so highly recommended," said Levein.

"I have worked with some great goalkeepers during my career and I hope in time to be talking of him in the same way as the others. Poland is a good place to get goalies just now."

"He is at the right age and is a hungry young man who sees it as a challenge, which I think is important. It is good that players see a move here as a way to better themselves."
