Biography


A youth player with ADO Den Haag, Nadir played his first full professional season with Portsmouth at the age of 18 before leaving for Turkey to play for Kayserispor, and NAC Breda the following season. Out of contract in 2013, Nadir signed for United following a trial spell during the pre-season of 2013-14.

Nadir is a Turkish national, and by the time of his Tannadice arrival he had been capped at Under-19 level with Turkey, despite having played for the Netherlands as a youth.

Getting off the mark in his first season with goals in all competitions, he was quickly established as a first team player and a favourite with the United support. In November 2013, he signed a contract extension until May 2016. He finished the season as United's top goalscorer in 2013-14 with 17 goals and collected a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup Final against St Johnstone. His second season at Tannadice ended in a similar fashion, with him again finishing as the Clubs' top scorer, this time with 16 goals, but he missed out on a League Cup runners-up medal, as he was suspended for the Final where United lost out to Celtic at Hampden. His two seasons with United were blighted with various run-ins with the officials.

In early July 2015, United accepted a bid from Celtic, believed to be around £1.5 million, and Nadir departed after an event-filled two seasons at Tannadice.
