James McPake completed his second and Dundee's third signing for the new campaign this afternoon with the capture of Jordan McGhee.
The 22-year-old defender joins from Falkirk on a two-year deal, following in the footsteps of wingers Josh Todd and Declan McDaid from Queen of the South and Ayr United.
McGhee started his career at Hearts and made his debut for the Jam Tarts in May 2013 at the tender age of 16. He played 16 times during their Championship League winning campaign in 2014/15 and the young defender would feature heavily in Hearts return to the Premiership the following season before he was signed by Middlesbrough on season long loan for their development team.
A year later, McGhee joined Falkirk for an undisclosed fee following the end of his loan in England and made 76 appearances over two season with the Bairns, eventually being made captain for the team in January of this year.
Speaking to the Official Dundee website, McGhee showed his delight at signing for the Dee.
“It’s going to be tough but Dundee should be looking to win the league and go up, it’s a massive club and hopefully I can do everything I can to help us get back up there.”
“I’m looking forward to the hard work, getting to meet the boys, get a feel for the place and meet everyone.”
