Peterhead manager Jim McInally is set to clinch his first loan signing ahead of the new campaign starting with Dundee United defender Kieran Freeman due to head to Balmoor.
The 20-year-old Scottish Youth international, who has played three times for the Tannadice first team this season was with the Terrors as a youngster before heading to Southampton in July 2016 for three and a half years.
Freeman returned to United this January on a short term deal which was quickly extended until 2022 with McInally delighted with his signing coup as he explained: “I have been chasing Kieran for a while and I am delighted that it has been agreed that he can come to Peterhead. He is an exciting young talent who has tasted Premiership football and impressed at that level.”
“I watched him play against Celtic recently and he went out and played without fear. He is athletic and will add a lot of value to Peterhead.”
