Dundee United confirm signing of Watford defender on loan

Brandon Mason

Dundee United have confirmed the signing of Watford defender Brandon Mason on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old is the second new face brought in by Csaba Laszlo.

Left-back Mason made four appearances for Watford in the Premier League last season, making his debut against Spurs, but has found first-team football difficult hard to come by.

He will go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s Championship trip to Falkirk.

United hope he will be joined by Danish attacker Emil Lyng who has also agreed to sign up at Tannadice, though the paperwork for that deal was still in process today.

Both Lyng and Mason have been training with their new teammates this week.
