Saints sign Northern Irish youngster

Monday 5th June

Saints are pleased to announce the signing of 18 year old midfielder Kyle McClean.

Belfast-born McClean had a trial period in Perth in the closing weeks of last season and following his release from Nottingham Forest, he has penned a one-year deal at McDiarmid Park.

Kyle has been included in Northern Ireland’s Under 21 squad for their opening Euro Under 21 Qualifier in Estonia on Thursday.

Tommy Wright said of the new recruit “I was very impressed with Kyle in his trial week here and he will go straight into the first team squad for the season ahead.”
