New Hearts signing Kenny Anderson is a Dundee United fan at heart.
The central midfielder joined the Jambos for a nominal fee from Jupiler League side RKC Waalwijk.
The 22-year-old has signed until the summer of 2016, having made 17 appearances for RKC this season, scoring four goals.
However, although born in Gorinchem, not far from the port of Rotterdam, Anderson has strong roots in Dundee and is an Arab.
His father Alex was born and raised in Clement Park Terrace, Lochee, before moving across the channel in 1978.
Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson said: “I’m delighted to get Kenny on board.
“He’s a quality player, one who I believe will slot right into our side.
“I’m looking forward to working with him and I feel we will get the best out of him.”
Anderson represented Holland at U/14 and U/15 level before switching allegiance to Scotland at U/16 and U/17 level.
He’s now set his sights on not only establishing himself in the Jambos first-team but also winning caps at international level.
“I would be honoured to receive an invitation from the SFA, and would gladly accept it,” said Anderson, who still has family in Dundee and Edinburgh.”
