Two new faces at Tannadice

Dundee United have moved to strengthen their squad with two more players arriving at Tannadice on Friday.

Former Rangers midfielder Charlie Miller has been captured from Watford and Beto Naveda comes from Boca Juniors. No fees were involved.

Ex-Scotland Under-21 skipper Miller has signed up for the next two-and-half years, while Naveda, who also had a spell in MLS in America, is at Tannadice until the end of the season.

Announcing the signings, United manager Alex Smith confirmed both will played against Motherwell at Fir Park on Saturday.

"I have targeted areas I feel need strengthening and I believe Charlie and Beto will add quality to the side," said Smith.

Creative midfielder

"Charlie is a creative midfielder who can also get goals from that area or as a striker, while Beto can play right up front or just behind the strikers.

"I am looking for them to form a good partnership that will help us improve our current position."

United currently lie rock bottom of the SPL with a meagre tally of just two points from 13 games and are eight points adrift of 11th placed St Mirren.

Smith has seen a marked improvement in his team's performances of late, and he will be hoping that the new arrivals can inspire a fightback from the relegation zone.

On hold

Darren Jackson's proposed move to United has been put on hold according to Tannadice insiders as the club try to sort out a deal. It appears the hiccup could be the contract Jackson is looking for as at 34 years of age, he's unlikely to win a better deal than he's currently on at Hearts.

However, with the arrival of two attack-minded players, the move for Jackson may have been buried for good.

Former Scotland under 21 player Jaimie Fullarton has also been linked with a move to Tannadice. The player is currently available on a free transfer from Crystal Palace and is thought to be keen on the idea of returning to the SPL.
