Peter Pawlett insists he is determined to be part of something special at Dundee United this season and help propel the club back into the Premiership
The 27-year-old joined the Tangerines on transfer deadline day from English outfit MK Dons.
The former Aberdeen winger admitted he was sold on the move by the vision Tannadice boss Robbie Neilson along with sporting director Tony Asghar and managing director Mal Brannigan have for the club.
Now, having made a scoring debut for United as they beat Morton on Saturday, he is determined to help them win promotion back to where he believes they belong in the top flight.
Pawlett said: “I got on with the gaffer really well when he was at MK Dons and I have kept in touch with him.
“The opportunity came up and I wanted to come back up the road.
“My family wanted to move as well so that came into the equation.
“It is definitely a club on the up. I spoke to Tony and Mal as well and I like the vision they are showing so I wanted to come up.
“There are a lot of new boys and if you look about the dressing-room we can trust each other and we feel we can do something special this season.
“When I played here for Aberdeen, United were always a big scalp.
“It is a massive club and is great to be part of now – hopefully we can get out of this league and up into the Premiership. That’s the aim.
“It is a good place to come to and the fans were brilliant today. It is a fantastic club and it is good to be here.
“The gaffer has that passion and I really like that.
“He gets you going and enjoying your football. That’s the most important thing for me – he lets you go and express yourself and play.
“He brings that passion out in me as well so yes, it is great.”
