Dundee have announced the signing of former Burnley defender Brian Easton until the end of the season.
The 24-year-old, released by the Championship club in the summer, joins on a free transfer.
"I'm very happy we have secured the services of a quality player like Brian, who is the seventh player we have signed in the last few weeks since being notified of our inclusion into the SPL," Dundee's chief executive, Scot Gardiner, said.
"Along with Barry [Smith, manager] and the board, we are confident that once the injury list clears up and the boys have the time to gel as a team, we will be able to push on and make our mark in the SPL this season.
"I also wouldn't rule out further additions but these will be within our budget as a fan-owned club."
Easton started his career at Hamilton Academical, debuting as an 18-year-old in a League Cup match at Queen's Park.
He went on to play 118 times for the Accies, before heading south to Burnley for a six-figure sum. He returned briefly on loan to New Douglas Park, before playing on 39 occasions for the English side.
