Ex-Hearts defender McGowan lands at Dundee United

Dundee United have confirmed the signing of Australian defender Ryan McGowan.

The 25-year old has penned an 18-month contract with the Tannadice club after departing Chinese Super League outfit Shandong Luneng Taishan, marking his return to Scottish football.

12-time Australia international McGowan, who made 71 appearances for Heart of Midlothian between 2008 and 2013, admitted it was a great feeling to be back in Scotland and says he is eager to assist the Tayside club.

"It is great to be back in the Scottish Premiership and I am excited about the challenge of being a Dundee United player," he told the club's official website.

"When I moved to Shandong Luneng Taishan, I believed I would return to Scottish football one day and for it to be here at Tannadice is fantastic.

"My time in China was a great experience but I look at what we can achieve here at Dundee United this season and I want to play a part in helping the club reach its goals."
