Dundee have completed the signing of Clyde captain Paul McHale. The Dens Park side had earlier agreed a pre-contract deal to sign the midfielder, 25, in the summer. But the Scottish First Division side have successfully negotiated his early release and he is expected to make his debut against Airdrie on Saturday. Dundee boss Alex Rae said the club have also signed former Aberdeen defender Gary Smith after his successful loan spell from Cowdenbeath. Smith has signed a deal until the end of the season after being released by the Second Division side.
Alex Rae is also trying to sign up on loan Jay Sheilds for the rest of the season. Other new signing Kevin Smith should make his debut as well.
