Former West Ham defender Demel lands at Dundee Utd

Dundee United have announced the signing of experienced defender Guy Demel.


The 34-year-old former Ivory Coast international has joined the Scottish Premiership club for the remainder of the 2015/16 season.

Deemed arrives at Tannadice following his release by West Ham United at the culmination of last campaign and admits he is excited to play a key part for Terrors boss Mixu Paatelainen.

"Once I spoke to the head coach, I was excited by the challenge of Dundee United and the role he has planned for me. I want to identify myself with the club," said Demel on the club's official website.

"I have many years of experience in football and if I can use my knowledge to help the younger players here, that is what I will do.

"I have been training hard and I can't wait to play for Dundee United. I am ready as soon as the head coach needs me."
