Dundee United captain Sean Dillon signs new two year deal


Dundee United defender Sean Dillon has put pen to a new two year deal, keeping him at the Tannadice club until 2017.

The 31 year old, who is in his eighth year on Tayside, said: “I love playing for Dundee United. This club is obviously a massive part of my life and the Dundee area is my family home. I have had many happy days here and have enjoyed success.

“I am delighted to get the contract signed and can now look forward to helping the club achieve even more success. The support I receive from the United fans has always been excellent and I am proud to continue to wear the tangerine top for another two years.”

United manager Jackie McNamara, paid tribute to the former Shelbourne man, he added: “He is immensely valuable to the club both on and off the field. On field, Sean has a versatility which means I can call on him to cover a number of positions and in the dressing room and as an ambassador for the club he is the model professional and the ideal role model for our younger players.

“It is very rare in today’s football world that a player commits 10 years to one club and by signing this contract Sean has ensured he will be a United player for that length of time.

“His commitment to Dundee United is amazing and I believe he will continue to prove a valuable part of the squad for the foreseeable future.”
