Dundee United have confirmed that Huddersfield striker Danny Cadamarteri has agreed a pre-contract deal to join them on a two-year contract.

The 29-year-old rejected new terms at the English League One side.

"Danny can play as a striker and a winger, so he brings versatility and experience," United manager Craig Levein told the club website.

"In my view he will strengthen an already impressive squad for next season's campaign."

Levein signed Cadamarteri during his time in charge at Leicester, which came after the player had served a six-month ban from the game after failing a drugs test.

The former Bradford and Leeds striker came to Huddersfield when he was signed by Clark's predecessor Andy Ritchie in the summer of 2007.

Cadamarteri, who has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, started 37 games for the Terriers, scoring five goals.

The former England Under-21 and Everton man was offered a one-year deal by Huddersfield, with an option of a second season dependant on appearances.

Terriers boss Lee Clark told the club website: "We think that the contract offer we made to Danny was a fair one.

"He has exercised the option of talking to other clubs given his current deal is coming to an end.

"We wanted him to stay at Huddersfield Town and we made it clear to him and his agent that we wanted him to be a part of what we are doing here.

"In order for him to get the second year of his contract he would have needed to be involved in the first team for a certain number of games, but he was looking for the certainty of a longer deal."
