Dundee United head coach Jack Ross revealed that he has already identified a number of transfer targets as he looks to build on the club’s success. Ross was sacked by Hibernian last December was waiting for the right opportunity to return to management. One of the biggest holes to fill will be that of goalkeeper Ben Siegrist who moved to Celtic after his contract expired.
“Ideally you want to be given an opportunity where there’s room for growth and further success,” Dundee United head coach Jack Ross said. “What the club achieved last year was terrific under Tam and the playing group, but I think there’s an opportunity and I want to have consistent period of success and I think there’s the potential to do so within this club. You don’t always have the ability to choose as a manager where you go back in, I’ve had to be patient but equally I wanted to wait for the one that felt right and this has felt like that from the first conversation.”
“He’s had that opportunity because he’s performed so well for Dundee United. The task for us is to bring in a goalkeeper of at least equal caliber or hopefully even better,” he said about the departure of Ben Siegrist.
“We’re hard at work to try and bring players to the club because we need to, that’s quite clear when you look at the numbers we have in the squad currently. It’s a young squad that a pathway was afforded to them last season, that will continue but equally in order to deliver the success you need to look to others to share that load. The identification of the players is there and the next part is trying to bring them to the club.”
