Dundee manager Barry Smith has signed former Hamilton and Burnley left-back Brian Easton.

Brian Easton: Moves to Dundee

The 24-year-old was a free agent after his three-year contract with the Clarets expired in the summer.

Dundee chief executive Scott Gardiner told the club's official website: "I'm very happy we have secured the services of a quality player like Brian, who is the seventh player we have signed in the last few weeks since being notified of our inclusion into the SPL.

"Along with Barry and the board, we are confident that once the injury list clears up and the boys have the time to gel as a team we will be able to push on and make our mark in the SPL this season.

"I also wouldn't rule out further additions but these will be within our budget as a fan-owned club."

Easton said: "I'm happy to be a Dundee player, I played pretty regularly in the Championship last season and I've also played in the SPL for Hamilton, so hopefully I can put that experience to good use here.

"The boys made me welcome at my first training session this morning and it looked to me like there's plenty of quality here."

Manager Smith added: "He's a big lad but he's also a very good footballer, he's comfortable on the ball and he'll be an asset to us."
