Fulham teenager Keanu Marsh-Brown has joined Dundee United on loan until January with an option to extend the deal through to the summer.

He becomes the second youngster to move to Tannadice from West London and follows Finnish striker Lauri Dalla Valle, who made his debut in the weekend draw at St Johnstone.

The nineteen-year-old midfielder was recommended to the club by Billy McKinlay, reserve team coach at Craven Cottage. He also prompted the arrival of Dalla Valle last week.

“He is a midfielder who can also do us a turn in defence if required,” Terrors manager Peter Houston told Dundee United’s official website. “With his pace and willingness to take on defenders, he gives us yet another option in wide areas and should also excite our fans. I am thrilled to have added him to our playing squad.”

Marsh-Brown is a former England youth international and scored twice in nineteen appearances whilst on loan to MK Dons last season. He has also previously alerted the attention of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and most recently Nottingham Forest.

Meanwhile, the Tangerines have been drawn away to Airdrie United in the Third Round of the Scottish League Cup. The tie will be played on Tuesday 20th September at Excelsior Stadium with a 7.45pm kick-off.
