Weaver set for United stint

Former Manchester City goalkeeper Nicky Weaver has signed a short-term deal with Dundee United.

The 30-year-old will be with the club until January after joining from Charlton, where his contract had expired, with the aim of gaining regular football and securing a move back to England.

United manager Craig Levein told the club's website dundeeunitedfc.co.uk: "I'm delighted to get Nicky Weaver in until the next transfer window in January."

He added: "Nicky is a proven goalkeeper at both Premiership and Championship level, with an impressive pedigree, and this move is beneficial both to him and to Dundee United.

"The short term nature of the deal gives me the experienced cover I need until Dusan Pernis joins us in January and allows him to put himself in the shop window for a move back to England, where I'm sure he could still play at Premier League level."
