St Johnstone have completed the signing of former Scotland striker James McFadden after a successful trial.
Cheick Tiote has revealed his desire to leave Newcastle and admits he has previously been contacted by Arsenal.
Yoann Gourcuff has reiterated his decision to reject a new contract with Lyon, claiming he does not feel the Ligue 1 club has faith in him.
The midfielder joined Lyon from Bordeaux for 22 million euros in 2010 but has since failed to hold down a regular starting place.
This has also affected his international prospects with the 27-year-old having also slipped out of contention for next year's World Cup finals in Brazil.
Gourcuff's contract runs out in 2015 and there will be no extension.
He told L'Equipe: "I will let my lawyer handle it.
"An extension must be a sign of confidence from both parties, with everyone being satisfied.
"That fact that I've been injured regularly or often on the bench... I don't think it's relevant.
"I have not felt huge confidence from the club at times."
On whether he expected more support, Gourcuff added: "Sometimes I find myself on the bench, like recently against Toulouse (1-1) and Bastia (3-1).
"These are small signs. It does not hurt me but I take note."
He knows his World Cup prospects are remote, saying: "I do not think of it at all, the priority is to play and to be on the field.
"For me, it is very far away."
