Attacking midfielder Aidan Nesbitt will go straight into the Dundee United squad for their clash with Partick Thistle after the club confirmed his arrival.
The 21-year-old has signed a deal through to the end of the season having secured his release from MK Dons.
Nesbitt, a product of Celtic’s youth academy, will be no stranger to the Championship as he has previously spent time on loan with Morton.
He has also played in the Premiership on loan with this weekend’s opponents and has set his sights on helping get United back to the top flight.
“It’s a big club,” said Nesbitt. “And I am delighted to be here.
“The aim is to play football regularly, with the goal of helping United reach the Premiership and hopefully secure a longer deal.”
Manager Robbie Neilson said: “Aidan is someone I know well.
“I paid money to take him to MK Dons and his first season was excellent.
“It hasn’t worked for him under a new manager down there, but I see him as the type of creative player who can help us produce more in the final third of the park.”
