Biography


Louis spent two years as a youth player with Dunfermline Athletic either side of spells with AM Soccer. In November 2015, the young striker had a trial at Raith Rovers, playing and scoring for Ray McKinnon's Under-20 Development team. In May 2016, he made local headlines when he was scouted by AS Roma and underwent a three day trial in Italy, before recently appointed Ray McKinnon brought the 17 year-old to Tannadice in August 2016.

Starring in the Development side, Louis made his first team debut as a substitute against Cowdenbeath during the League Cup group stages in August 2017, and at the end of that season signed a two year contract extension. In 2018-19, he was involved in the Challenge Cup, and featured as a substitute in the League Cup. In January, he was sent out on loan to junior side Broughty Atheltic, managed by former United player Jamie McCunnie, where he netted an impressive 23 goals in a four month stint.

On his return to United, now under the management of Robbie Neilson, Louis became involved in the first team, scoring his first goal for the club during the League Cup group stages. Over the course of the season, he became a prominent member of the first team squad, scoring several important goals as United secured promotion back to the Premiership. On October 17th, 2019, he signed a contract extension to keep him at Tannadice until the summer of 2022.

Under the management of Micky Mellon during the 2020-21 season, Louis came in and out of the starting eleven, and struggling to make an impact during the club's first season back in the Premiership, scoring just one goal. He struggled similarly the following season, and in January 2022 he was sold to Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee.
