Dundee United have confirmed the signing of Finland attacker Riku Riski.
The 26-year-old, who has worked with Paatelainen at both club and international level, joins United from Norwegian club Rosenborg until the end of the season.
Riski told United’s official website: “I’ve known the head coach for many years and have worked with him for a long time at both club and international level.
“I look forward to working with him again. I see this as a great challenge. I follow the Ladbrokes Premiership and the situation the club finds itself in doesn’t scare me. I know what we have to do as a team and I will give my all every week.
“The football culture in Scotland is so strong and I am excited about testing myself in this environment. I relish the opportunity to perform for Dundee United and help the club go forward.”
