Having been accustomed to the likes of the MLS draft in the USA, the final week of the Scottish transfer window is a new experience for Dundee United midfielder Dillon Powers.
But it’s something that the battler thinks is fascinating to keep track of. Robbie Neilson recruited the midfielder earlier in January following a spell with Orlando City in his native America.
He’s started several times already for United, looking likely to become a key part of their engine room efforts. Whilst he didn’t get quite caught up in the transfer drama himself, he’s been intruguied by it all in the last few weeks.
Powers reckons it’s a nice little novelty to have in our game: “This will be my first time being around for it. I don’t know too much about it other than that I can watch things here and there on the TV.
“Thus far, I have just been concerned with getting myself settled here in Scotland.I have not had too much time or energy to look much beyond that. I would say it’s kind of similar to the draft back home.
“I think it makes for a lot of talk and excitement about the game. I think that’s one thing I have really enjoyed about being here in general is that the football culture is so strong.
“To be in a place where that is the case is pretty cool.”
