The 21-year-old left back has signed a two-year contract with the Staggies after leaving former club Oxford City.

A West Bromwich Albion youth product, Harmon featured for the Baggies' under-18 and under-23 sides – including wearing the captain's armband at youth level – and was named the club's scholar of the year at the end of the 2018/19 season.

He made the move to Oxford last summer, though, getting his first taste of senior football in the National League South as he made 40 appearances to help them to a fifth place finish.

“George is a promising young talent that we have tracked over a period of time," County manager Malky Mackay said.

"At 21 he has played men’s football and has thrived in that environment which is why we have brought him to the club.

"There are still aspects we want to develop with George, but he comes with a strong developmental pathway behind him at West Brom and is somebody we want to help as he keeps growing and learning.

“George has shown he can handle playing men’s football consistently at a young age and his hunger and ambition is exactly the type of player we are looking to recruit at Ross County.”
