St Johnstone have announced the double signing of Drey Wright and Andy Considine as they build their squad for next season.

Both players were available as free agents after leaving their previous clubs and will be part of Callum Davidson’s squad as they return to training.

Wright, who left Hibs at the end of his contract, returns to McDiarmid Park two years after leaving for Edinburgh.

Considine joins the club after drawing a line under his time at Aberdeen, where the club stalwart spent 18 years.

He told the club’s official website: “I’m looking forward to the challenge. I had been at one club for 18 years, so coming here will get me outside my comfort zone.

“It’s a new challenge with a new group of boys which I’m relishing. I’m really looking forward to getting started and meeting the fans.

“I’m delighted to get the move finalised. The manager has been in touch since the end of the last campaign.

“Both myself and my family are excited to be here. I spoke to the manager multiple times over the close season and I’m very happy to get it over the line.”

Wright, 27, revealed the move was “quite a straightforward one.”

He said: “I am really happy to be back. It has been a long time coming, I was close to re-joining a couple of times.

“I am happy it is all sorted and I am looking forward to the next couple of years.

“Once I knew what my position was at Hibs the manager got in touch with me.

“I have known Callum Davidson for a number of years now, in previous windows when it has looked like I could be on the move, he was always in contact. It was quite a straightforward one to get sorted.

“I look back at my time here fondly, it was an enjoyable two years, but it was cut short with my injury and then Covid.

“I want to play regular football, I haven’t for a long time. I know a lot of the staff here so it should be easy enough to settle back in.”

St Johnstone manager Davidson is looking to freshen up his squad after a difficult season that saw the team survive a fight against relegation.
