Biography


As a product of Brechin Boys Club, John progressed through United's youth system before signing for a professional deal in 2012. On January 2, 2013, John made his first team debut to become the youngest Dundee United first team player in recorded history at the age of 16 years, 100 days - a record that wouldn't be broken until some six years later.

He surprised many by becoming a regular in the United first team as a commanding yet skilful centre half, attracting the attention of several Premier League clubs in England. His form earned him call-ups for Scotland, at Under-17 level in 2012 and Under-19 in 2013.

He became a feature under new manager Jackie McNamara and started the 2013-14 season well, earning a contract extension to keep him at the Club until January 2016, before dropping out of the side to the bench, starting less frequently. In May, he collected a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup Final against St Johnstone as an unused substitute.
