Livingston have signed midfielder Jason Dair on a two-year deal after he rejected new terms with Motherwell.
Jason Dair scored twice for Motherwell last season
The agreement came at an ideal time for the former Dunfermline Athletic, Millwall and Raith Rovers player.
Livingston boss Allan Preston, who now has eight players for next season, said: "He turned 30 yesterday, so I am hoping this is a nice present for him.
"He is a good lad as well as a good player and I always do my homework on a player. He has a good attitude."
Preston has had to build up a squad almost from scratch as he inherited just four contracted senior professionals when the club began moving out of administration after Pearse Flynn's Lionheart consortium took control.
Free agents Steven Boyack and Jim Hamilton have joined from Hearts and Ross County respectively and goalkeeper Roddy McKenzie opted to sign on for another two years.
Captain Stuart Lovell is the eighth man, although he has yet to put pen to paper on an agreed one-year deal.
Dair began his professional career at Raith Rovers and had two spells at Stark's Park, with a short stint in England with Millwall in between.
He joined Dunfermline in 1999 and spent last season at Motherwell.
Motherwell boss Terry Butcher wanted him to stay at Fir Park but could not match Dair's wage demands.
