Dingwall done deal delivers Dutchman Dyron Daal
ROSS County made their seventh capture of the summer yesterday by securing Dutch forward Dyron Daal on a one-year contract.
The former Aberdeen and Dundee player was released by St Johnstone in January and played the rest of the season for CF Fuenlabrada in the Spanish fourth division.
The 24-year-old Amsterdam born attacker is a product of the Ajax youth system and played briefly for Utrecht before Jimmy Calderwood brought him to Scotland.
He struggled to command a regular place at Pittodrie, but enjoyed a regular run at the end of the 2006-07 season, netting five times in seven appearances for Dark Blues.
However, first team football again proved difficult at the Saints, who freed the player in January after he had started only three times.
The Dingwall men have compensated for the loss of last season's leading scorer Andy Barrowman by bringing in Steven Craig, David Winters and now Daal.
Richie Hart, Scott Morrison, Danny Griffin and Richard Brittain have all committed themselves to the Victoria Park side.
The Staggies squad is now beginning to takes shape for the First Division campaign ahead after the securing of promotion last term.
County director of football George Adams said: “Dyron is someone who will give us something different up front. “He is six feet three inches tall and will give us a real presence in attack. We are still looking to add to our squad before the season begins.
“But we are happy with the recruits we have brought in so far."
Daal has international experience. In January 2008, he was called up to the Holland Antilles squad for their World Cup qualifier with Nicaragua. He had already won two caps.
