Murray Davidson has signed a new short-term contract with St Johnstone which will allow him to continue his recovery from a torn patella tendon.

The deal will run until August, when both parties will revisit the issue.

The 26-year-old - who would have been out of contract this weekend - has not played since January but the Perth club are willing to keep him on board and assess his fitness at the start of the new season.
