St Johnstone have signed goalkeeper Elliott Parish and right-back Wallace Duffy.

Parish, 29, joins on a two-year deal as a free agent after two seasons at Dens Park, while Duffy, 20, has been released by Celtic.

Duffy, capped by Scotland at Under-19 level, can also play at centre-half.

Parish was a regular in his first term with Dundee but played just seven matches in the last campaign as the Dark Blues were relegated.

He will provide back-up for Zander Clark, with the new arrival telling the Saints' website: "I think it's going to be good for both Zander and I to be working together and hopefully it can improve us both.

"He's in front of me and I know that but all I can do is be the best I can and be ready if an opportunity comes along. Hopefully if I do get a chance I'll put in performances and win over the fans.

"The manager has been great and he's been totally honest with me from the word go. He told me the role I have and that I will have to bide my time and be patient as Zander is the club's number one."

Duffy will vie with the experienced Richard Foster for the right-back berth at McDiarmid Park.
