Pars sign Morrison and De Vries

Dunfermline will sign Dutch keeper Dorus de Vries on Friday, having tied up winger Owen Morrison.

Both have agreed one-year deals and Jim Leishman is hopeful of making another signing at the weekend.

Leishman said of De Vries: "He is really short of fitness just now. We've given him a fitness programme and we saw in Holland that he has a talent."

The Pars boss will have another look at defender Souleymane Bamba, who played in Thursday's 0-0 draw with Osasuna.

"He reminds me of a young Marvin Andrews when he was on trial," Leishman told the club website.

"He did alright, he didn't make any mistakes, was good in the air and he just about scored."

Morrison also featured against the Spaniards, which he says will help him get up to full fitness.

"I need another four or five games to get where I want to be and more fitness work. I am aware of that and think the management staff know that too," he said on the club website.

"Last season I had a bad injury and I was out for six months. I am still trying to get back to full fitness."

Morrison, who was called into the Northern Ireland squad five years ago but never played, started his career with Sheffield Wednesday.

He played in the Premiership at the age of 17 before moving on for spells with Sheffield United, Stockport then Bradford.
