ROSS County have completed the signing of former Manchester United winger Chris Eagles on a deal until the end of the season.

Staggies boss Owen Coyle has worked with Eagles at Bolton Wanderers and Burnley and the 32-year-old signs after impressing during a trial period.

Eagles started out his career as a youth at Manchester United but struggled for first-team games, leaving for Burnley in 2008.

He made over 100 appearances for the Lancashire club as they won promotion to the English Premier League in 2009.

Coyle and Eagles joined forces again at Bolton in 2011 and the latter stayed at the Reebok Stadium for three seasons, despite their relegation to the Championship.

It has been a frustrating time since then for Eagles, who has bounced around Blackpool, Charlton Athletic, Bury and Accrington Stanley. He signed a short-term deal with Port Vale in January until the end of the season and it looked to be a direct fight between them and County to secure his services.

Eagles is primarily a winger and can play on both flanks, while he has also operated as an attacking midfielder.
