Goalkeeper Jon McCracken has been handed the number one jersey after returning to Dundee on a permanent deal following the expiry of his contract at Norwich.

The 24-year-old Scot had two separate spells on loan at Dens Park last season – either side of a stint at Accrington – and made 15 appearances in total for the Dark Blues as they finished sixth in the Premiership.

McCracken started the closing 11 matches of the campaign after ousting veteran Trevor Carson and now appears set to start next term as Tony Docherty’s first-choice keeper following his return to Tayside on a two-year contract.

“It’s great to be back,” he told the Dundee website. “It’s my third time signing in 12 months, it must be some sort of record, but I’m delighted to commit to the club like they have committed to me.

“At the end of the season, it didn’t feel like I was saying goodbye, we had already had initial talks about me coming back and when I sat down and spoke to the manager about it my mind was made up.

“In the end, it was a fairly easy decision. To be part of the team that finished in the top six was fantastic and I’ve seen the ambition the club has and I want to be part of that.”
