The Club’s Academy is pleased to announce the signing of Rhys Caves. Born in 2003, Rhys plays holding midfield and will join our U17/18 squad. He was previously with Rangers. 

Dundee United’s newly appointed Academy Director Andy Goldie stated: “The signing of Rhys is a massive coup for our Academy and it is a great testament to the vision we have for our Club that he turned down another eight offers to continue his development at Dundee United. 

"I am personally delighted to have secured his signature having watched him flourish in the Scottish FA JD Performance School programme at Braidhurst High School and at Rangers Training Centre. He is joining a squad with a number of other potentially exciting players and I'm looking forward to seeing him continue to grow as a person and a player here within our environment."
