Swanson rejoins Saints on two-year-deal

The club is delighted to announce that Danny Swanson has rejoined this morning on a free transfer following his release from Hibernian last night.

The 31-year-old has signed a two-year-deal at McDiarmid Park returning for his third spell in Perth. Danny first arrived at Saints on-loan from Coventry City in 2015 before joining Hearts, but he returned here on a permanent basis in February 2016.

After making 44 league appearances and scoring 11 goals for the club, Danny moved to Hibs in the summer of 2017 but left the Easter Road side last night after one season to return to Saints and become the club's 8th signing of the summer, much to the delight of manager Tommy Wright.

"I'm really pleased to have him back here," Tommy told the club's official website this morning.

"Obviously, he was freed by Hibs last night and as soon as we knew that the chairman acted really quickly to bring Danny back to the club.

"It's another great piece of business for us and I'm over the moon to add him to what is already a very strong squad.

Tommy added: "Danny is a player that needs no introduction to the fans. They know exactly what his qualities are and what he's capable of.

"I've always felt that Danny has been at his happiest here and that he's played his best football at this club. It's my job to make sure I get the best out of him again.

"Competition for places has never been higher and at the top end of the pitch we're looking really strong. It's my task now to manage that because not everybody can play every week.

"If the club wants to be successful we need to have healthy competition. We've now got great strength in depth and we're looking forward to an exciting season ahead."
