Dundee United have completed the signing of Cardiff City striker Warren Feeney on a season-long loan.

The 27-year-old will team up with fellow Cardiff player Willo Flood, who will spend a second season on loan at Tannadice next season.

Dundee United manager Craig Levein said: "He is a player I know very well, having seen him in opposition when I was at Leicester City.

"He will add pace, experience and a goal scoring capability to the team."

Feeney, who spent a spell on loan at Swansea City last season, has also played for Leeds United, Bournemouth, Stockport County and Luton Town.

The Northern Ireland international joined the Bluebirds in July 2007.

It is no secret that I've been looking to bring in an experienced striker for next season

Feeney's cousin Lee once had a spell with Rangers and the Cardiff man's father and grandfather were both Northern Ireland internationals.

"It is no secret that I've been looking to bring in an experienced striker for next season and Warren certainly meets the criteria expected for this position," said Levein.

"Several other clubs approached him over the weekend when news leaked out that he might be available.

"It is a credit to him however that having agreed to come here, he made good on his word and I'm highly delighted to welcome him to Dundee United."
