EX-Saint Danny Seaborne has joined Partick Thistle on a two-year contract.

The 27-year-old defender has joined on a free transfer ahead of Partick’s opening Scottish Premiership match with Ross County on Wednesday.

Seaborne made 53 first-team appearances for Saints, and only three after suffering serious head injuries in an attack outside a Southampton nightclub in September 2011.

He spent time on loan with Charlton and Bournemouth before joining Yeovil after leaving St Mary’s.

A loan move to Coventry became permanent in January but his contract was cancelled by the League One club last week.
