Dunfermline have strengthened their squad with the loan signing of Hearts right-back Jason Thomson, who will be at East End Park until January.
The 23-year-old is expected to join the Pars squad when they travel to Austria for a pre-season trip this weekend.
Thomson came through the ranks at Hearts and broke into the first team as a teenager but made only six appearances last season.
He previously had a loan spell at Livingston in season 2006/07.
Dunfermline have returned to the Scottish Premier League after winning last season's First Division.
