Ross County have made Regan Charles-Cook their fourth signing of the summer.
The former Charlton Athletic and Gillingham midfielder has put pen to paper on a two-year deal in Dingwall as he moves north of the border for the first time.
The Gills had been keen to keep hold of the 23-year-old, but had not officially offered him a new deal meaning that County do not have to pay compensation.
In his youth days, Charles-Cook had been in the Arsenal set-up before moving across London to Charlton, where he made his senior breakthrough.
He made 21 appearances for Steve Evans' side on their way to a 10th place finish in last season's curtailed League One campaign, having turned out 41 times overall in his two years at Gillingham.
Staggies manager Stuart Kettlewell said: “Regan is a player we are really excited about. He is young, hungry and is looking to really push
himself on and these are qualities we are looking for.
“If you look at some of the experience, he has for such a young player, Regan has competed at a good level and we hope he can bring that here. The Scottish Premiership will be another step up for him but we will work hard with him to make sure he can achieve at this level.
“We have tried to take in some younger players this summer with a bit of experience that have that desire to want to push on and we are really happy to get Regan on board, who we feel ticks those boxes.”
Charles-Cook joins last week's arrivals Stephen Kelly, Connor Randall and Alex Iacovitti as new faces in Dingwall.
