Dundee midfielder Dylan Carreiro has been called up by Canada.

The 19-year-old Canadian U/20 skipper has been handed his first senior international call by manager Benito Floro.

The youngster will join up with the squad, which also contains recent Dens Park trialist Adam Straith, for a training camp in Mexico this weekend.

It comes as a reward for the early-season form of the former QPR kid, currently on loan at League Two Arbroath.

Signed on a free transfer this summer by manager Paul Hartley, Carreiro impressed in the Development League for the U/20s.

So much so that the gaffer saw it fit to send him out on loan in order to gain experience with view to using him later in the Dark Blues Premiership campaign.

Carreiro has made three appearances for the Red Lichties since making the 93-day emergency loan switch. He registered his first senior goals in Arbroath’s 5-2 win over Clyde earlier this month.

Carreiro’s call-up means Arbroath be without the on-loan midfielder against Montrose in the Scottish Cup this weekend.

“We had not asked Dundee for permission for Dylan to play in the cup and it looks like we will not need to,” said Arbroath assistant boss Todd Lumsden.
