Ross County completed the signing of midfielder Ross Draper from local rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The Staggies paid a fee of around £100,000 for the 28-year-old, who has agreed a two-year contract.

"He has very good physicality and is a better footballer than many people think," said County boss Jim McIntyre.

"He's also a major goal threat. With the way we play, we like to get crosses into the box and we feel he can be a real asset for us."

Draper spent five years at Caley Thistle and had signed a three-year contract extension in January 2016.

He played 43 times for Inverness last season as they were relegated from the Premiership and has started all five of their games this season.

Draper joined Inverness from Macclesfield Town after previous spells in England with Shrewsbury Town, Stafford Rangers and Hednesford Town.
