Dundee United today announced the signing of midfielder Sam Stanton until May 2020.

The 23-year-old joins United from Hibernian on a permanent contract after playing 28 games in the first-half of the 2017/18 season on loan at Tannadice. He has scored five goals for the Terrors this season.

Manager Csaba Laszlo said: “Sam is a player who I can use on the right side, the six-position and also the ten-position. He is a good person who fits the club and is a good signing for United.

“He very quickly decided he wanted to stay here. He believes he can help the club achieve its target of reaching the Ladbrokes Premiership and despite only being here a short period while on loan, he was very clear his future was here.”
