MORTON have made their third summer signing.

Boss Ray McKinnon has snapped up former Rangers, Dundee United and Livingston midfielder Charlie Telfer.

The 22-year-old has penned a one year deal at Cappielow.

Telfer, who has been capped at under-21 level, was most recently playing in Holland with Almere City but has opted to return to Scotland to continue his career with the Ton.

It means he will link up again with his former boss - McKinnon made him a key figure in his Dundee United side while in charge at Tannadice.

The Morton manager says he is 'delighted' to secure the player's services.

He said: “He’s a top-class football player, a fantastic professional, who I know very well from my time at Dundee United. He played almost every game as we went to the play-offs.

“I recognised what type of player Charlie was – a ball player who likes to keep possession and pass.

“He then went to Holland for a new experience – he’s that type of person; he likes to experience life – and thoroughly enjoyed it.

“We knew his contract was coming up and we’d been in contact over the last three or four weeks and I’m thrilled to have been able to entice him to Morton."

Telfer follows Chris Millar and Gregor Buchanan to Cappielow as McKinnon embarks on a major rebuild of the squad.

The manager revealed that he had fought off tough competition from other sides to lure Telfer to Ton, telling the club's website: "There were two or three other clubs interested but we’d been at him constantly and the way we’d worked together previously probably swung it our favour. He’ll be a great addition to the Morton squad.”
