Cape Town - 21-year old South African-born left back, Darren Holden, has signed a two year contract at Scottish Premiership club, Ross County.

The youngster, originally from Krugersdorp, spent the past few years at English club, Hartlepool United, after coming through their development system, but his contract expires at the English club at the end of the month.

Holden played 61 games for Hartlepool since making his debut four years ago.
