Peterborough United have signed Scottish midfielder Danny Swanson on a free transfer.

The 25 year old joins the Championship club after leaving Scottish Premier League side Dundee United. He's signed a two year deal.

Swanson started his Scottish League career at Berwick Rangers before moving to Tannadice Park in January 2008.

His performances with the Dundee club led to a call up to the full Scotland squad in October 2011, but he suffered a knee ligament injury shortly afterwards.

Swanson becomes Posh manager Darren Ferguson's second free-transfer signing this summer, following defender Nat Knight-Percival's arrival from Wrexham.
