Dundee sign goalkeeper Jack Hamilton from Hearts

Dundee have signed goalkeeper Jack Hamilton from Hearts on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old made just five Scottish Premiership appearances for Hearts this season with Jon McLaughlin the number one at Tynecastle.

Hamilton will now challenge Elliott Parish and Calum Ferrie to be Neil McCann’s first-choice stopper at Dens Park.

Hamilton has also represented Scotland at every level from under 15 to under 21 and has been in the full international squad on several occasions although he is yet to make a senior appearance.

Hamilton told DeeTV: “Speaking to the manager he really sold the club to me.

“He was brilliant, he was very keen on getting me in and it’s something that I thought would be brilliant for me.

“It’s a massive club, a massive Premiership club that has real ambition so I thought it would be a great place to come and be involved.

“From the first conversation, he had a real passion. He’s got a real ambition and his idea of where he wants the club to go is really good and I want to be a part of that.”
