Former Italian international striker Fabrizio Ravanelli has completed his move to Dundee.
Ravanelli is Dundee's biggest signing since Claudio Caniggia
The ex-Middlesbrough and Derby frontman was unveiled at a press-conference at Dens Park, where he put pen to paper on a two-year contract.
The 34-year-old joins his former Derby team-mate Craig Burley at the club after holding
extensive talks with Dundee director Giovanni Di Stefano.
Dundee manager Jim Duffy said: "To say it's an exciting time for the club is an understatement and it's also an understatement to say that we are delighted to see a player of this quality here.
"It underlines the ambition of the club, especially considering the doubts surrounding Giovanni di Stefano.
"I think a few peoples' words have been rammed down their throats.
"It's a great day for Dundee and it's good for Scottish football to attract a player like this."
Ravanelli cannot wait to return to full match fitness so that he can show what he can do at Dens Park.
He said: "I'm very happy to be here and I love this country.
"This club has a very good future and speaking to the manager and Giovanni di Stefano showed there is a lot of ambition.
"I can't wait to get my Dundee career started."
Ravanelli, Dundee's biggest signing since Argentine Claudio Caniggia in 2000, is unlikely to make his debut against Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday because of a lack of match fitness.
The Dens Park side also face Ravanelli's hometown club Perugia in a Uefa Cup first round match on Wednesday, but the forward is not eligible for European action.
Ravanelli, who arrives at Dundee boasting a wealth of experience, scored for Juventus in their 1996 Champions League final success against Ajax, a 1-1 draw after extra time that the Italian side won on penalties.
He has since played for Middlesbrough, Olympique Marseille, Lazio and Derby County.
