Dundee United boss Csaba offers contracts to French youngsters

Dundee United boss Csaba offers contracts to French youngsters

Dundee United are set to continue their January signing spree by offering French kids Logan Martin and Idris Kadded contracts.

And gaffer Csaba Laszlo also remains keen to add another experienced striker to his squad.

United have already added Craig Slater and Brandon Mason on loan deals this month and striker Emil Lyng has been fixed up on a short-term contract.

Now former Benfica and Genoa kid Martin (20) and ex-Nice youth squad member Kadded (18) have the chance to make their stays permanent.

The midfielders have been on trial since the beginning of last week and Martin played in the Development League win over Celtic on Thursday past.

Assuming they sign up, they will add depth to the squad, but Csaba is also eager to add another front man with first-team know-how.

“We have to look what is in the market but I want definitely in the future more players in the squad. Not just to have bodies there, I want to have more competition,” he said.

“I hope we can get someone who can come in and help us.

“I want more ball possession and I want more courage to take the ball and don’t lose the ball too early.”

Csaba was happy with the contribution of Lyng on his first start in Saturday’s goalless draw at Dunfermline, though he conceded the Dane missed United’s best chance when he headed over in the second half.

“With Emil Lyng it seems that we have found somebody who can really help us.

“We definitely have now more or less a target man and we are still looking for another one.”

After the 6-1 defeat at Falkirk the previous week, Csaba felt it was important his players steadied the ship on Saturday.

To that extent he was pleased with a battling performance, though the disappointment was seeing leaders St Mirren extend the gap at the top of the Championship to eight points via a win at Dumbarton.

“We played tough opposition and after the very bad result at Falkirk it was important that the team showed character.

“It was also very important that we don’t lose the game but on the other side we have lost ground to St Mirren.

“It’s not nice that is clear, but the season is not finished.”
