Dixon says move south is step up
Paul Dixon believes he has made a step up in his career after leaving Dundee United for npower Championship newcomers Huddersfield.
The former Dundee left-back signed a three-year deal with Simon Grayson’s side after leaving United under freedom of contract and the 25-year-old told his new club’s website: “When I entered the final year of my contract at Dundee United I thought to myself that this would be my fourth season and that it was probably time to move on.
“It has always been an aspiration of mine to test myself in English football and I believe that the Championship, with Huddersfield Town, is the next step on the ladder. I believe I have made a good move.
“I think it is a step-up from football in Scotland and I believe it is the next logical step for my career.
“I am really looking forward to starting this new challenge – playing against completely different teams and players in different stadiums week in week out.”
Meanwhile, Dixon’s new team-mate Scott Arfield, a £400,000 signing from Falkirk two years ago, will miss the start of next season after it was confirmed yesterday that he had broken his ankle in the play-off semi-final win over MK Dons last month.
