Craig Conway is officially a St Johnstone player after the McDiarmid Park club confirmed his capture on a one-year deal.
The former Dundee United star – in line to make his competitive debut against his old club tomorrow – said Perth boss Callum Davidson played a massive role in convincing him to sign for Saints.
He told St Johnstone’s official website: “I always go on my gut feeling and having spoken to the manager a lot I got a really good vibe.
“I was really happy with the things he was saying about the club, his vision moving forward and how he saw me fitting into that.
“It’s great to be a part of it and I’m just looking forward to getting out there on the pitch and getting the new season started.”
Conway – a United hero after his goal-scoring exploits in the 2010 Scottish Cup Final – added: “It’s been a mad few months for me but I’m delighted to be here.
“I think it’s been about ten years since I last lived in Scotland and I actually stayed in Perth while I was playing for Dundee United so it’s great to be back.
“The first game of the season will be against my old club and I just knew that would happen!
“I’m looking forward to it if I’m involved although it will be a little strange going back there (to Tannadice).
“I’ve been lucky enough to play a lot of games for some big clubs and I think that I bring that experience in to help what is a young and talented squad here.
“From what I’ve seen in training there’s a lot of quality here and hopefully I can help add to that.
“I’m feeling fit and I’ve been training with my previous club Salford up until about four weeks ago as well, so I’m raring to go.”
