Barry Douglas: Former Dundee United defender is heading to Poland

The 23-year-old left-back has agreed a two-year contract with the club and says that he's looking forward to the new challenge.

Speaking to Sky Sport News he said: "I'm nervous because it's happened all of a sudden and there's a big culture change. But, there's excitement there as well and I'm looking forward to it."

Lech have qualified for European competition next season, having guaranteed the runners-up spot in the Polish Ekstraklasa division, and Douglas said it's a move he couldn't refuse.

He added: "There's more lows than highs in football and I don't want to live with any regrets which is why I think I have taken this challenge as well.

"Part of the deal is that me and my partner go to Polish lessons.

"Obviously that's the first language here and I am sure I will pick up little bits as I go."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
