St Mirren have signed Paul Dummett this afternoon on a loan deal from FA Premiership side Newcastle United.
While Paul hasn’t as yet made his first team debut for Newcastle the 20-year-old has captained the St James’ Park club’s Reserve side. He was out on loan with Gateshead towards the end of last season where he also won a player of the month award.
Paul – who can play left back or left centre back and has been capped by Wales at Under-21 level – will be on loan until January 2013.
Danny Lennon’s latest signing has been assigned squad number 3 and will go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s game against Aberdeen at Pittodrie Stadium pending international clearance which is expected as all necessary paperwork was put through and confirmed before the 5:00pm deadline.
