Dundee United today announced the signing, subject to international clearance, of Polish Under-21 internationalist goalkeeper Michal Szromnik. The 21-year-old joins the Club on a three-year contract after a fee was agreed with his former club, Arka Gydnia, who play in the Polish 1 Liga.

Manager Jackie McNamara said, "Michal comes very highly recommended and our goalkeeping coach Craig Hinchcliffe is very impressed with his ability. I see Michal coming in and challenging for the number one jersey immediately.

"He has a lot of experience for someone his age and every aspect of his game has strong foundations. His arrival will add to our options and create a more competitive environment for the goalkeepers already here."

Michal said, "Dundee United is a Club which gives players a chance regardless of age and also has a history of Polish goalkeepers. This is a great opportunity for me and I am very excited by this opportunity."
