Nathan Cooney Signs on Permanent Deal - By Steven Mew

The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of defender Nathan Cooney on a pre-contract agreement from Dundee United FC.

The 20-year old will of course be familiar to City fans having signed on loan from the Tangerines in January, although he was limited to just 2 appearances after sustaining a foot injury.

Prior to the injury setback, Manager Andy Kirk was highly impressed from what he saw from the Dundee United academy graduate and was keen to tie him down on a permanent deal.

Andy commented, "Nathan came in on loan from Dundee United and trained with us a few times and played a couple of games. From that you could see he was a player that we would definitely want. He's quick, strong, aggressive and very good defensively - he'll bring a huge amount to our back line.

"He's another young player that is desperate to improve so we're delighted to get Nathan and we're looking forward to working with him."

The addition brings City's squad up to 12 signed players for the upcoming season, with further signing news expected over the coming weeks.
