Dundee United

Dundee United have signed winger Gary Mackay-Steven on a two-year deal after he impressed manager Peter Houston in pre-season training and friendlies.

Mackay-Steven, 21, was previously at Ross County and Liverpool, then moved to Airdrie United in November 2009.

He is in the United party travelling to Poland for the Europa League qualifier against Slask Wroclaw.

"He has fantastic pace and skill and can deliver great crosses, but he still has a lot to learn," said Houston.

And the Tannadice boss added: "We don't play with out-and-out wingers so he would have to learn to play the way we like to but I like what I have seen so far.

"There is great potential there. Gary is a welcome addition to our squad."
