Dundee United have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Trevor Carson as the Sunderland academy graduate signs from cinch Premiership rivals Motherwell.

The Northern Irish international started his career at Sunderland and has been with Motherwell since 2017. He worked his way up to vice-captain at the Fir Park club but a DVT issue followed by a knee injury disrupted much of his last three seasons.

Carson now joins Dundee United to compete for the goalkeeper spot in Thomas Courts’ side with Benjamin Siegrist. Courts said of former Sunderland goalkeeper Carson: “Trevor is an experienced international player who has performed well in the Scottish Premiership and has built a strong reputation for his performance levels.

“He joins a motivated goalkeeping group who push each other every day, so he is a welcome addition to what we are aiming to do.”
