Semple spent the first half of the season on loan at Queen of the South, scoring once in 27 games, and said he was “delighted” to join the Staggies.

Semple added: “I can’t thank United enough for the last ten years and getting me to where I am now.

“From the players, staff and fans for helping me every single day and guiding me to here – especially the physios for getting me back playing.

“Always a special place in my heart for my boyhood club.”

Sheffield-born Semple recently recovered from a serious knee injury and is eligible to represent both England and Scotland at international level.
