Dundee United have signed forward Max Biamou on a deal until the end of the season.
The 30-year-old striker has been a free agent since leaving Coventry City in the summer and has now become the latest addition to manager Tam Courts’ squad.
The Frenchman moved to England in 2016 to join Sutton United and after a successful season with the London club he moved to Coventry. Biamou helped the club to back to back promotions and also had a season playing alongside current United striker Marc McNulty.
He said that he had spoken to his former teammate to learn more about the team before rreaching a decision on his future.
“To be honest, this summer I’ve had some offers from some clubs but I decided to come here,” he told the club’s website.
“I had a chat with McNulty and he said to me he’d be happy if I came to the club and I’ve seen some clips of the team and they are playing very good football.
“That’s important for me and why I decided to come here.”
Courts explained that Biamou offered something to the team’s attack that his other strikers don’t.
“Max is a different profile to what we already have at the club and complements our existing forwards,” he said. “He is someone who has performed consistently well during his time in English football and has all the attributes to be a success in Scottish football. I think our fans will connect with Max quickly, as he brings total commitment to every performance”.
Sporting Director Tony Asghar said, “Max has been on our radar for a while now and has had interest from England and abroad but has chose to come to Dundee United. He will add quality to our squad and I am pleased to get the deal done.
“We have been very selective in our transfer business this season and it has paid off so far. We believe that Max will be another who will show himself to be a great addition and someone who will improve with infrastructure, facilities and staff here at his disposal.”
