Simon King will sign for Inverness on Wednesday

Inverness have announced that Gillingham defender Simon King will be their latest and last summer recruit.

The 29-year-old will sign for Caley Thistle on Wednesday when his contract with Gillingham expires, after featuring for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League club during pre-season.

Manager Terry Butcher said: "Simon has agreed to sign on Wednesday and that completes our first team pool."

He added: "He's a useful acquisition with good experience and we're pleased to land him.

"We'll have a settled squad much earlier this time, and they'll all have gone through pre-season together."

King has been suffering from a thigh strain but Butcher expects the former Barnet player to be fit for Saturday's SPL opener at St Mirren Park.
