Dunfermline have completed the transfer of Euan Murray from Fife neighbours Raith Rovers.
The two clubs agreed a fee for the player earlier this week with the defender now agreeing terms with the Pars, signing a two-year deal at East End Park.
Rovers were keen to keep hold of Murray, who still had a year left on his deal at Stark’s Park but could not stand in his way after the club failed to win promotion last season.
Now, the 25-year-old former Clyde and Stenhousemuir defender, who is equally at home as a centre-half or full-back will play in the Championship next season with Dunfermline.
In a statement, the Kirkcaldy club said: “Raith Rovers confirm that defender Euan Murray (25) has signed for Dunfermline Athletic after a transfer fee was agreed.
“Over the past week, the club rejected several offers for Euan which did not meet our expectations despite the player indicating he wanted a transfer from the Rovers.
“The club were keen to keep the player but in the event of this failing, wanted to ensure a fair return was received in exchange for a player that has another season left on his Rovers contract.
“As we need a playing squad fully committed to getting promoted to the SPFL Championship, Raith Rovers finally agreed an undisclosed sum plus sell-on clause for the transfer of the player to Dunfermline.
“Raith Rovers wish to thank Euan for his time and efforts at the club and wish him well for the future. Our focus is bringing in replacements which will help meet our objective of promotion.”
Dunfermline added: “Euan had attracted the interest of a number of other clubs so we are delighted that he sees his future at East End Park, after we agreed suitable terms with Raith Rovers.”
