Dundee Utd snap up Hull fullback Townsend

Dundee United have snapped up Hull City defender Conor Townsend.

Townsend has joined the Scottish Premiership club on a season-long loan.

The Hull academy graduate has spent time on loan at Grimsby, Chesterfield and Carlisle in recent seasons.

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara told the club's official website: "I was delighted to secure Conor so quickly. It was important to get him in early so he can settle in before the start of the competitive action.

"He is a really good defender who will do a job here. His athleticism and height will enhance our squad."
