Gregory Tade: Joining St Johnstone

The 25-year-old French striker has signed a pre-contract with the Perth club after leaving Clydesdale Bank Premier League rivals Inverness.

The deal is for a minimum of one year.

In a statement, Tade claimed Europa League football helped sway his decision to join the McDiarmid Park club.

He said: "Over the last few weeks it has been very intense with various clubs showing interest in me.

"I felt that my first season in the SPL went very well and it was important to build further on that form.

"I had great advice from Pro Legal Sports Management regarding my options and decided that I should expand on last season by staying in the SPL with St Johnstone.

"I will also be given the opportunity to play in Europe which is hugely important.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Terry Butcher and everyone connected with Inverness FC for their support throughout my time at the club."
