Dundee United have snapped up teenage midfielder Blair Spittal from Queen’s Park.

The eighteen-year-old playmaker arrives on a three-year deal after appearing in 59 games and scoring thirteen goals for the Spiders.

“He has versatility but it’s his attacking threat which really caught my eye,” manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Scotland. “Having watched his progress closely I’m convinced that he’ll prove to be an excellent signing and entertain the United fans greatly.”

The Tangerines also signed his team-mate Andrew Robertson last summer and that helped clinch their latest deal ahead of fierce rivals Dundee.
