St Mirren have signed free agent Jake Doyle-Hayes on a contract until the end of the season.
The Irish midfielder joins the Saints following the expiry of his contract at Premier League Aston Villa.
Doyle-Hayes has been capped at under-21 level for the Republic of Ireland and had loan spells at Sky Bet League Two sides Cambridge and Cheltenham.
The 21-year-old told St Mirren’s website: “I’ve had a lot of interest during the window but when I heard St Mirren were interested it caught my attention straight away.
“I was delighted with the interest and I wanted to get it done as soon as I could.
“All the lads have helped me settle in really quick and I’ve really enjoyed the first few days I’ve been here.”
