DUNFERMLINE have completed the pre-contract signing of Sunderland midfielder Tom Beadling on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old will complete the move to East End Park on July 1 after signing the paperwork with the Pars this morning.

Beadling is the fourth member of Allan Johnston's squad from last season to put pen to paper, following the contract renewals of Lee Ashcroft, Lee Robinson and James Craigen last week.

After signing on loan from the Black Cats in January, Beadling scored on his debut in a 2-1 defeat to Morton and went on to become a regular in the side.

But, a thigh injury sustained at Falkirk on April 7 prematurely ended his campaign after 13 appearances, but he has now agreed to return to Athletic ahead of the new campaign.

Press Sport understands that a number of players - including Fraser Aird and Nicky Clark - have also been offered new deals.
