Dundee have signed former England Under-20 right-back Ethan Ingram on a two-year contract after he rejected the offer of a new deal with West Bromwich Albion.

The Gloucester-born 21-year-old had been with the Championship club since the age of 12 but told Dundee's website that he views the move to the Scottish Premiership as "a good opportunity for me".

Ingram, who revealed that "talks have been going on for a few months", added: "I'll bring a lot of athleticism and a lot of direct football and I love to get forward and run."

The defender, who has made three first-team appearances for West Brom, spent last season on loan to Salford City, playing 27 times in all competitions for the side who finished 20th in League Two.
