Defender Keith Watson will join St Johnstone next season, having agreed a pre-contract switch to McDiarmid Park.

Watson, 26, has signed a two-year deal with the Perth club after a campaign with St Mirren in the Championship.

The full-back, who can play in central defence, made 29 appearances for the Buddies, scoring five goals.

He was released by Dundee United last summer, following eight years at Tannadice, after spending time on loan at Hibernian.
