dufc-old/www.dundeeunitedfc.co.uk/index-27267.asp: Dundee United today announced the signing of midfielder Charlie Telfer. The 18-year-old joins the Club on a three-year deal after his contract at Rangers expired. The right-sided Scotland Under-19 representative joins United after spending over ten years with the Ibrox club and will link up with his team mates when the squad returns on 30th June. Manager Jackie McNamara said, "Charlie is a very gifted footballer with great awareness and has excellent delivery from set pieces. His style of football will settle in perfectly with the rest of the young talent we are currently producing at the Club. "He is a sensible, level headed young man who wants to play for Dundee United and I am delighted that we have secured his services for the next three years." Charlie Telfer said, "I have watched how the younger players at United are allowed to develop in the first team and that has been a big reason in my decision to join the Club. The opportunity to play in the Scottish Premiership next season was also something I could not turn down. When I met the Manager and saw the facilities that are available at St Andrews, I know that I can further my football development at Dundee United. "United received a lot of praise for their football last season and it was deserved as it is very easy on the eye. I like to get the ball down and play and this is the ideal place for that. I believe I am ready to play in the first team but I have to show the Manager that is the case. I cannot wait to meet my new team mates and start pre season."
