He left Fir Park after the expiry of his contract this summer. The left midfielder has since been on trial with Oxford United, but a deal doesn’t seem to have materialised.
Now the Tangerines have been linked with him. Frear would be an excellent addition to Robbie Neilson’s side.
Frear is Premiership quality, so he’d stroll the Championship with Dundee United
At Motherwell Frear was a frustrating figure. On his day he’d be brilliant, but when that was varied. Inconsistency riddled his game and it’s why he never made regular starts at Fir Park.
There’s no doubting his work ethic though. Frear did give it his all any time he pulled on claret and amber, and if it was his day, he’d be a dangerous player.
Fairly quick, the ex-Well wideman would attempt to drive the left hand touchline and cross most of the time. Alternatively, he’d cut inside and have a pop at goal.
Frear could handle himself well at a club like St Johnstone or Ross County. He has Premiership talent, so if Neilson can tempt him to Tannadice, he’d be a great signing.
His confidence will have been rocked after seeing his minutes reduced towards the end of last season, where he didn’t make a start after the winter break.
Neilson has to offer him games to rebuild it. If he can, then Frear will be one of the best wingers in the second tier. He’d do a decent job in the Premiership, so the winger would stroll the Championship.
Frear would be a great addition to the Tangerine ranks.
