Football - New deal for Davidson

St Johnstone have been handed a further boost following their Europa League triumph over Rosenborg with the news midfielder Murray Davidson has agreed to re-sign with the Perth club.

PA Sport Report

The 25-year-old former Scotland cap looked set to quit Saints at the end of last season and move south to England.

But with no acceptable offers materialising, he has opted to sign a new one-year deal with the club.

Manager Tommy Wright said: "It's great news for the club. It's no secret that Murray had indicated that he wanted to play in England and I can fully understand why but he was always in touch with the chairman and I over the summer and he told us that if nothing came his way down south then Saints were the only team in Scotland he would sign for.

"He put pen to paper before the Europa League game and it's great to have him back."
