DUNFERMLINE have announced the signing of former Dundee United youngster Scott Lochhead this afternoon.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who joined the Arabs in 2014, was a free agent after leaving Tannadice in January but has now agreed a deal at East End Park.

Formerly a youth player with Rangers, he signed for Celtic in 2012 and went on to represent the Hoops at under-20 level, before he was released in 2014.

That summer Lochhead joined United on a two-year-deal but, despite featuring regular in the under-20s, he failed to make a top team appearance before leaving the club earlier this year.
