Dundee United have signed Hearts winger Billy King on a pre-contract.

The 22-year-old will officially join the club in the summer having previously totalled almost a century of appearances and fourteen goals at Tynecastle.

King also had loan spells with both Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Rangers and scored three times in thirty-two games for the Highlanders during their latest campaign.

“I am delighted to secure my future at a Club like Dundee United,” he told United’s official website. “The time is right for me to move on from my parent club Hearts and I will leave Tynecastle with some great memories, but I am excited about the future.”

Earlier this week the Tangerines secured Hibernian striker James Keatings on a pre-contract arrangement.
