Saints sign duo

The Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Drey Wright and Andrew Considine on two year contracts until the summer of 2024.

Considine, 35, has pledged his future with Saints until 2024. 

The Scotland international was released by Aberdeen after 18 years at the club. 

Considine spoke about a new chapter awaiting him at St Johnstone: 

“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, joins the club after being released by Hibernian at the end of last season. 

The midfielder returns to McDiarmid where he made 36 appearances over a two-year period. 

Wright is delighted to be back at Saints and 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.”
