Ryan Sweeney says he is looking forward to a ‘new experience’ at Dundee as the former Stoke City defender joins the cinch Premiership on a two-year deal.
Dundee were promoted to the division after winning last season’s Premiership play-off final against Kilmarnock. Sweeney – a centre-back – joins after time with English League Two club Mansfield Town, the former Irish youth international also spending time with Stoke City, AFC Wimbledon and Bristol Rovers.
Sweeney said of his move to Dundee: “Since I spoke to the manager, things moved pretty quick in the last week and I’m delighted to get it over the line. My agent asked if I wanted to look into coming up here and my initial reaction was ‘100% yeah’, it will be a new challenge for me, a new experience and one I’m looking forward to.
“The club did fantastically well to get themselves out of the Championship, obviously that is a huge pull to come and play Premiership football.”
