Dundee star Paul McMullan was delighted to complete a loan move in the January transfer window from Dundee United.

The player originally agreed a pre-contract agreement to join Dundee at the end of the season. However, the teams managed to come together and thrash out a loan deal which saw McMullan the Dens Park club in January.

The 24-year-old knew that he wouldn’t feature at Tannadice after agreeing the pre-contract deal, so he was pleased to get the move to Dundee sorted ahead of time.

“It was handled pretty well”

“I think it was best for everybody. It would probably have been quite a long three or four months for myself not playing any games and just turning up for the sake of being there. I think it was handled pretty well by everybody, and I’m glad we got to this solution” he said.

The player helped Dundee United win promotion to the Premiership last season, and he is hopeful he can do the same with Dundee this season.

“Got a good chance”

“It’s a really good group. I’ve been here a couple of days and I can see that already. We’ve got a good chance, whether it’s winning the league or via the play-offs. Hopefully we can get some good results together and start making that charge” he said.

McMullan also identified how picking up points when not playing well is key to any promotion charge.

“I think it’s probably the games where you don’t play too great, just find a way to pick something up. Whether it be scraping a draw, or even nicking three points. Especially with being a shortened season, any dropped points are crucial, and that’s something you need to avoid”.

Dundee takes on Raith this afternoon, and McMullan will be hoping to make his debut in that game.
