Ross County has signed defender Steven Saunders on a one-year deal.

The Staggies have secured the 22-year old full-back from Motherwell after he had a trial with Sheffield United.

"Steven is a highly rated defender and was attracting a lot of attention from other clubs. We are delighted he has chosen to join Ross County," County manager Derek Adams said.

Saunders spent five years at Fir Park but is looking to resurrect his career after experiencing injury difficulties over the past 24 months.
