Dundee United have announced the signing of a “potential number one” goalkeeper.
Former Aston Villa youth prospect Benjamin Siegrist is due to join the Tangerines on a two-year deal.
The 26-year-old, who is 6ft 5in tall, has represented Switzerland at under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21 level.
UPDATE: United also announced that Slovakian shot-stopper Matej Rakovan is also joining from Czech side FC Vysocina Jihlava on a two-year deal.
Siegrist signed for Aston Villa aged just 16, reaching the final of the 2009-10 FA Youth Cup and winning the 2011-12 Premier Reserve League South title.
Siegrist later joined Cambridge United, Solihull Moors and Wycombe Wanderers on loan before moving to Liechtenstein-based Vaduz in 2016.
He was a backup keeper when Switzerland contested the FIFA European under-21 Championship and the London Olympics in 2012.
United manager Csaba László said: “Benjamin comes to Dundee United with a very good pedigree and is a large presence with good hands.
“I see him as a potential number one alongside another goalkeeper and this will be good for Dundee United.”
Siegrist added: “I am delighted to come to a club like Dundee United. It is a great opportunity for me to start a new chapter in my career and I am looking forward to the challenge.”
