A recent signing made by Dundee could make a big impact on their battle to stay in the Premiership.
Andrew Nelson joined the club from Sunderland in the January transfer window. He has already made an impression, scoring three goals in five appearances for the Dens Park side so far.
Nelson has had experience of playing in Scotland before, as he scored four goals for Falkirk last season in helping them avoid relegation.
He is now playing at a higher standard than that, but has continued to score on a regular basis.
Dundee boss Jim McIntyre hopes that a bit of career stability will help Nelson go a long way in the game.
“I think when you are a young lad who has come from a big club and you have been loaned out a couple of times, there is that need to feel wanted” he told the Courier.
“We have given him the security of a two-and-a-half-year deal because we have a great belief that he can do really well here and grow as a player.”
Nelson has previously played for not only Falkirk, but Hartlepool and Harrogate on loan. That hasn’t dissuaded Dundee from taking a gamble on the player though.
McIntyre and the rest of the staff at Dundee must see something in Nelson, and he has rewarded them so far. His long-term deal with the club will be one of the transfers of the season should he manage to keep Dundee up.
