Dundee United have signed defender Mark Durnan on a three-year deal from Queen of the South.
The 22-year-old was with St Johnstone earlier in his career and also had spells on loan at Arbroath, Stranraer and Elgin.
United boss Jackie McNamara told the club website: "Mark is a strong centre-half, something I have been looking for. He has the hunger and desire to succeed at Dundee United.
“He had greater financial offers from elsewhere but wanted to enhance his football development and sees the opportunities for young players at Tannadice."
