Boss Paul Sturrock told the club's official website:
"We needed a freshness in midfield and he can play several positions in there.
"We've had him watched several times. He is a livewire, box-to-box-type player. He is very similar to David Norris in that he is a pocket dynamo.
"He is very hungry for the challenge and I have taken him as an offensive player to come from midfield and support the front two."
