Clarkson signs

Dundee are delighted to announce that David Clarkson has signed for the club today.

A striker, David has been training with the club for a few weeks and has impressed the management team during this time.

Capped twice for Scotland, David scored on his international debut in a friendly against Czech Republic in 2008.

He started his career with Motherwell and broke into their first team at the age of 17. David spent six seasons as a regular in the Fir Park side’s first team, scoring double figures three times.

In summer of 2009, David moved South to join Bristol City for a reported £800,000 where he played alongside Dundee boss Paul Hartley.

After two years with the English side he spent time on loan at Brentford before moving across the city to join Bristol Rovers in 2012.

David returned North in the summer and after spending time training at Dens has agreed a deal.

We spoke to David shortly after he had put pen the paper, the video interview can be seen below.

 Manager Paul Hartley told us, “We are delighted to get him signed up. I know him well from playing alongside him.”

“He hasn’t really played as a main striker for a few years but we see him as a centre forward. He will give us good competition.”

“Good experience and a good goal return at this level. He’s impressed us over the few weeks we’ve had him in training.”
