Defender Joe Shaughnessy has agreed to join St Johnstone on a two-year deal following his release from Aberdeen.

The 22-year-old Irishman made his Dons debut in 2011 and made 48 starts for the Pittodrie club.

However, he has featured just twice this season, either side of an 11-game loan period at Falkirk in the Championship.

And he was told last week that his contract with the Premiership runners-up would not be renewed.
