Tommy Wright: Brings two more in at McDiarmid Park

Easton, 25, moves to Perth from Dundee while 41-year-old Banks has joined from city rivals United and both have agreed 12-month contracts.

Easton was a target for previous manager Steve Lomas while Londoner Banks will fulfil the same role at Saints as he did at Tannadice, that of player/goalkeeping coach.

The pair follow David Wotherspoon in at McDiarmid Park as Wright looks to shape his team ahead of the new Scottish Premier League season and Europa League qualifying campaign following Lomas's switch south to manage Millwall in the Championship.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
