Inverness line up County captain
Don Cowie
Cowie will be free to move to Inverness in May
Inverness Caledonian Thistle have signed Ross County captain Don Cowie on a pre-contract agreement.

The 24-year-old, whose contract at Dingwall expires in the summer, has been with the First Division club for seven years.

But Cowie insisted the lure of a move to the top-flight was too great.

"Going to Caley Thistle offers me the chance to play in the SPL, which has been my great ambition," the long-serving midfielder said.

"It will be a tremendous wrench to leave County as this is my eighth season full-time with them.

"But there comes a point when you have to do what's best for yourself."

Cowie will follow former County team-mate John Rankin into the Inverness midfield.

"I hope fans will look at it as Caley Thistle and their fans have done with Darren Dods, who has signed a pre-contract agreement (with Dundee Utd) to leave in May," he added.

Talks about a return to Caledonian Stadium from Dundee United for midfielder David Proctor came to nothing.

There had been suggestions of a swap deal involving Dods.

But Caley Thistle were unwilling to let Dods leave before the summer.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old goalkeeper Jonathon Smith has moved from Inverness to Highland League neighbours Clachnacuddin.
