St Johnstone appear to have signed Ross County's Richard Brittain on a pre-contract agreement. The midfielder will have to stay with Ross County for the rest of the season before joining their rivals in the summer. Brittain started his career with Livingston before heading to St Mirren in the summer of 2006 before moving on to Dingwall two years' later. St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas has obviously buried the hatchet with Brittain after accusing him of 'cheating' during Spetember's game with County. Lomas spoke out after the 2-1 win in Dingwall on 22 September, in which striker Rowan Vine was sent off after a collision with Brittain. Lomas was handed a suspended two-game suspension for his comments, but has clearly made peace with Brittain.
