Dundee United completed the deadline day signing of former Hamilton midfielder Grant Gillespie.
The 26-year-old was released by Accies last week after nine seasons with the club.
Gillespie said: “I am delighted to join Dundee United. I come here ready to do what I can to help the club get back to the Premiership.
“I am fit and ready to play. We have 14 games until the end of the league campaign and I join, believing that Dundee United can be a Premiership club by the summer. Joining until the summer presents an excellent opportunity for me to show my ability and secure a longer deal.”
Gillespie was part of the Accies side that denied United promotion in last season’s play-off final.
