Vignal leaves Dundee United

French defender Gregory Vignal has left Dundee United by mutual agreement, for family reasons.

Vignal moved to Tannadice from Athens side Atromitos in September but has not played a game for Peter Houston's side.

The 31-year-old has featured for a number of British clubs in the past, including Liverpool, Rangers, Portsmouth, Southampton and Birmingham.

But Vignal has now left Dundee United with the club seventh in the SPL table.
