Rudi Skacel has penned a short-term deal with Dundee United it has been confirmed.

The 33-year old Czech midfielder has been without a club since departing Heart of Midlothian at the end of last season and will now suit up for the Arabs with manager Peter Houston delighted to have Skacel at his disposal until the end of January.

"I feel Rudi can add an attacking spark to our team. Players of his quality do not present themselves to you too often and I am delighted to be able to bring him to Tannadice," said Houston.

"The length of the deal gives both of us a chance to have a good look at each other and I feel our younger, less experienced players will benefit from Rudi's involvement at the Club.

"His goal scoring ability should make him a fans' favourite."
