Dundee United have snapped up striker Mario Bilate on a two-year deal from Sparta Rotterdam, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old Russian-born marksman arrives following three seasons with the Dutch second-flight club.

“He will bring a different dimension to our attack,” manager Jackie McNamara told United’s offiial website. “He is strong, tall and quick and is at the right age to progress his career. Mario knows the players are developing here and wants to be part of that.”

The Tangerines have already previously signed defenders Jaroslaw Fojut and Callum Morris, alongside young midfield duo Charlie Telfer and Blair Spittal.
