Flood On His Way To Dundee United

Flood On His Way To Dundee United

Dundee United will complete the 1-year loan signing of Cardiff City midfielder Willo Flood when the transfer window re-opens on the 11th of June.

However, the 22-year-old midfielder wont join up with the rest of the Dundee United squad until July, because his girlfriend is expecting a baby, so he`ll remain in Wales for a few more weeks.

After spells with Manchester City, Rochdale (on loan) and Coventry City (on loan), Flood struggled to make an impression on Cardiff City manager David Jones.

The Irish Under-21 International has made only 5 starts for Cardiff since joining in August 2006, including a further 20 appearances from the bench..

After interest from Dundee United manager Craig Levein, Flood consulted Cardiff teammate Kevin McNaughton on a potential move to Scotland.

"Willo asked me what it was up like in Scotland when he first heard of the interest from United. He was wanting an idea of what the football was really like," said McNaughton.

"I recommended it and told him he'd be well suited to the football. There's probably a bit more football played in Scotland compared to England and from that point of view he'll relish it so I can only see him doing well."

Dundee United manager Craig Levein explained why he wasn`t in a hurry to bring Flood upto Tannadice to get him involved in preparations for next season.

"We are still working on getting Willo`s loan deal sorted out, but it`s not a problem because we can`t officially sign him until later this month anyway," admitted Levein.

"Also, his girlfriend is about to have a baby so he is staying with her. We could have him up here next week, but there is no hurry."
