Dundee United fans shocked that they’ve signed Guy Demel


Dundee United have signed ex-Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg and West Ham defender Guy Demel and Social Media has exploded.

Fans of the Arabs have been busy reacting to the news that the 34-year-old defender has moved to Tannadice until the end of the season.

And it’s fair to say that there are feelings of shock, awe and excitement in equal measure.

Earlier this afternoon the club announced Demel’s arrival…

You’re always going to get one fan who goes a little OTT.

What? Demel’s coming to Dundee United?! You better believe it buddy.

United fans have been busy giving props to boss Mixu Paatelainen.

Even a few West Ham fans wouldn’t mind seeing Demel back at Upton Park.

Meanwhile, you just can’t please some people…

Can we expect more of the same from Demel?

Some people are so cynical.

It’s going to be mental.

Dundee United are currently six points adrift at the foot of the Ladbrokes Premiership and Evens to finish bottom of the pile.
