Dundee beat Falkirk and Barnsley to signing of Sunderland striker Andy Nelson

Dundee beat Falkirk and Barnsley to signing of Sunderland striker Andy Nelson

Dundee have landed young Sunderland striker Andy Nelson.

The 21-year-old has joined on a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

He is a product of Sunderland’s youth academy and has spent four spells out on loan.

After spells with Hartlepool United and Harrogate Town he joined Falkirk in the SPFL Championship last season under former Dundee boss Paul Hartley.

Nelson scored 4 goals in 15 appearances as he helped Falkirk to safety last season.

The 21 year old joined Darlington in the National League North on a short term loan deal last month, scoring six goals in five games.

There was interest from a number of clubs on both sides of the border.

Darlington wanted him back and there was also interest from Falkirk and Barnsley.

But the frontman last night arrived in Dens in time for Saturday’s cup clash with Queen of the South.
