Dundee United boss targets four new signings by Friday

Dundee United boss targets four new signings by Friday

Dundee United boss Csaba Laszlo has revealed he wants to add a further four new faces to his squad.

And if he gets his way, the deals he wants will be done in time for next week’s Betfred Cup kick off against Arbroath at Tannadice.

Csaba fielded all his nine signings so far in Tuesday night’s 2-0 friendly win over Brechin City at Glebe Park.

And he was reasonably pleased with what he saw from his new-look squad.

The plan, however, has always been to take the signing count into the teens and specific targets to do that have been identified.

“We are not finished with our recruitment,” he said.

“Definitely we are working to get the players we need for next season.

“I am planning from the budget and maybe four more players. If we can get these players we need and who are already in our frame, it will be good.

“We have players who are on our radar. All the players who come in will be ambitious and have other possibilities.

“This is good because it means Dundee United will not be their second choice but the first choice.

“Some players have to make a decision and we have to make ours as well.

“We are working to be complete, maybe by the end of next week.

“We do have five or six weeks until the league begins but we want to finish our recruitment as soon as possible.”

Regarding the men he’s brought in already and who were on show up in Brechin last night, Csaba felt they played some good stuff but admitted he expected it to be even more impressive.

Overall, he was satisfied with the 2-0 success.

“I was prepared to see better football. It was not bad but I was prepared to see better because of how they have trained.

“I have been very pleased with them so far. On the other side, I have to tell you they have trained very focused and hard for one-and-a-half weeks, so there was tiredness in their legs during the game.

“We did play good football and passed the ball but there were some mistakes, especially in the middle of the pitch.”

Tickets for the Betfred trip to Ross County later this month are on sale.
