FYVIE JOINS UNITED

Published: 4th August 2017

Dundee United announced on Friday the signing of midfielder Fraser Fyvie on an initial one-year contract. Fyvie was part of the Hibernian squad which achieved promotion from the Ladbrokes Championship last season. He was also a member of the Wigan team who won the 2013 FA Cup. The 24-year-old started his career with Aberdeen, being the youngest ever player to play for Aberdeen and in 2010 become the youngest ever goalscorer in the Scottish Premier League. He has represented Scotland at U15, U16, U17, U19 and U21 level. Fraser said, "I am happy to secure a deal at a Club like United. When I spoke to the manager, he convinced me that this was the place to be for the next stage of my career. "I am sure United fans will remember me from playing against them for Hibs and previously Aberdeen, but I am looking forward to showing them my ability and helping secure promotion for United." Manager Ray McKinnon added, "Fraser is an experienced, excellent midfielder who fits the criteria we are looking for. He will enhance our midfield and our dressing room." Fyvie becomes the eleventh summer signing as United attempt to secure a return to the Ladbrokes Premiership.
