Former Celtic and Scotland striker Simon Donnelly has agreed a one-year contract with Dunfermline.
Donnelly has agreed a one-year deal with Dunfermline
The 29-year-old has impressed Pars boss David Hay while training at East End Park and the terms could be extended if the player continues to do well.
"Davie has every confidence in Simon and hopefully he'll repay that," Dunfermline director of football Jim Leishman told BBC Sport.
"It's a one year deal initially but could be more if he does well."
Donnelly joined Sheffield Wednesday from Celtic in 1999, but played in the Scottish First Division with St Johnstone last year.
"I am delighted," Donnelly told the club's website. "I have been in since last Thursday so it is good to get it finalised.
"It has been a target for me to get back into the Premier League and Davie (Hay) and Dunfermline to give me the opportunity.
"Dunfermline did really well last year finishing fourth and getting to the Scottish Cup final. They are in the Uefa Cup so it will be good times."
Dunfermline will not be pursuing their interest in trialist Iain Anderson, who has moved on to spend some time training his old club Dundee
Meanwhile, St Johnstone's McDiarmid Park looks likely to be the venue for Dunfermline's home games in the Uefa Cup.
The Pars' European opponents can opt not to play on East End Park's synthetic surface and chairman John Yorkston told shareholders at their annual general
meeting that McDiarmid Park is the favoured alternative.
