Dundee manager Barry Smith has signed former Hamilton and Burnley left-back Brian Easton.
The 24-year-old was a free agent after his three-year contract with the Clarets expired in the summer.
Dundee chief executive Scott Gardiner told the club's official website: "I'm very happy we have secured the services of a quality player like Brian, who is the seventh player we have signed in the last few weeks since being notified of our inclusion into the SPL.
"Along with Barry and the board, we are confident that once the injury list clears up and the boys have the time to gel as a team we will be able to push on and make our mark in the SPL this season.
"I also wouldn't rule out further additions but these will be within our budget as a fan-owned club."
