Jim McIntyre completed his second signing of this season by adding striker craig curran to his squad from championship rivals Dundee united.
Curran was signed by Csaba Laszlo in the summer but failed to make an impression at Tannadice with only three goals in sixteen appearances.
Rumours had swirled around the city that Curran would make the short trip up the street and even though he was an unused substitution today in United’s draw with Partick Thistle, both he and his now former employer were able to agree on an early contract termination to allow him a route back to the SPFL Premiership.
Curran has previously enjoyed playing under Jim McIntyre whilst at Ross County which resulted in three successful seasons before the Highland teams relegation last term.
Speaking to the official Dundee website, McIntyre was excited at adding Curran to his squad.
“I’m absolutely delighted that Craig has signed tonight. He is a player I know very well from our time together previously.”
“Craig is the right type, he has the right mentality and he is exactly what we need moving forward.”
