St Johnstone defender Tam Scobbie has signed for Dundee United.
The former Falkirk man, who can play at centre-back and left-back, has agreed a two-year deal.
He is Ray McKinnon’s third signing for next season – joining Billy King and James Keatings at Tannadice.
Scobbie’s Saints deal came to an end in the summer.
Scobbie said: “I am excited to join United. It is a great club with fantastic support.
“When I spoke to the manager, I knew this was where I wanted to sign, and I am delighted to have my future secured. I look forward to meeting my new teammates and being together in our attempt to get back into the Premiership.”
McKinnon said: “Thomas is an excellent defender who can play both left back and central, and he will enhance our defensive options. As important, he is also a great organiser, a real leader with plenty of experience and these are vital characteristics for me.
“We need to add more players, and I expect to further add to the squad before pre-season begins.”
