Welcome Samuel Stanton

July 15, 2017

Dundee United announced on Saturday the signing of attacking midfielder Samuel Stanton on a one-year loan deal.

23-year-old Samuel spent last season on loan at Dumbarton and, having made 70 appearances and scored seven goals for the Hibees, is entering the final year of his contract at Easter Road. He becomes Ray McKinnon’s ninth summer signing as United chase the Ladbrokes Championship title. Stanton made 26 appearances and scored six goals for Dumbarton last season.

Samuel has represented Scotland at both Under-19 and Under-21 level.

Samuel said, “I am excited to join United. It is a fantastic opportunity for me at a great Club and I hope to help United secure the Championship title.

“It is important at my age that I am playing week in, week out and to be offered the opportunity at a club like United is great. I cannot wait to get on the park and show the United fans what I can bring.”

United Manager Ray McKinnon said, “We have been busy in recent days and securing Samuel rounds up a fantastic few days.

“Everything we are currently doing is geared towards ensuring we have a strong matchday squad and Samuel is a great young, hungry footballer who brings real attacking ability.

“We are getting close to where we want to be, but I am hoping to add a few more before the league campaign begins.”
