Dundee United fans have reacted positively to Robbie Neilson’s first three signings as Dundee United manager, as his overhaul of the squad begins.

United today confirmed their third signing of the January window with 2010 Scottish Cup winner, Morgaro Gomis rejoining the club for a third stint. The French-born Senegalese defensive midfielder was a free agent after ending his time with middle-eastern team, Sur Club in Oman.

The 33-year old was invited to train with United and has signed a deal until the end of the season. Depending on international clearance, he could be eligible for this Saturday’s clash with Dunfermline and the fans have reacted positively to his return.

Striker Cammy Smith became Neilson’s second signing and his return to Tannadice was announced on Wednesday as the club confirmed the capture of the 23-year old from Ladbrokes Champonship titleholders, St Mirren.

Smith came through the Aberdeen academy before joining the Terrors on loan back in 2016 as they embarked on their first Championship campaign.

Neilson has also brought in one of his ex-players, Aidan Nesbitt, who he worked with at MK Dons. The attacking-midfielder left the Buckinghamshire club on a free transfer after it did not work out for him under new boss, Paul Tisdale. United fans took to Twitter to express their happiness with the new manager’s first signing.

United have also been linked with former Hearts talisman, Osman Sow, Aberdeen’s Peter Pawlett and Ian Harkes, a former teammate of Wayne Rooney in the United States.

Former hearts player and Ayr United full-back, Liam Smith is another target for the former Jambos boss as the South Ayrshire club rejected a five figure sum for Smith. Raith Rovers winger, Daniel Armstrong has also been linked with a move to Tannadice.

After collapsing in the final 20 minutes against Alloa on December 29 to lose 2-1, Neilson slammed the players he inherited from Csaba László’s tenure. The former united right-back announced after the match that some players were not “good enough” and “a lot of them won’t be here because that’s not acceptable” in an interview with Wasp TV.

So far Craig Curran has been the only confirmed departure as he was released by United and allowed to join city rivals, Dundee as they try to climb out of the Ladbrokes Premiership drop zone.
