Ross County have confirmed two new signings to boost their push for a return to the Scottish Premiership.

Lewis Spence and Kenny Van Der Weg were confirmed on Thursday by the club’s official website.

Van Der Weg is no stranger to Scottish and enjoyed a spell with County before leaving 12 months ago.

Spence was released by Dundee after 18 months at Dens Park after making the breakthrough at Dunfermline.

As the two arrived, another two were on their way out as Tony Dingwall was released and Davis Keillor-Dunn joined Falkirk on loan.

County sit three points clear at the top of the Championship after 20 games.

With two players with top-flight experience added, it is a good move as they look for an immediate return to the top tier.

Both players could make their debut on Saturday in the visit to face Queen of the South.

The two signings should strengthen the squad but loaning Keillor-Dunn out is a poor choice.

The attacking midfielder can be a game-changer and is exactly the sort of player County should be playing.

Falkirk have pulled off a really good signing and it’s one that the Staggies will be hoping won’t haunt them.
