St Johnstone striker John Sutton has joined Championship side St Mirren on a two-year deal.

The 32-year-old was told at the end of last season that he was free to find another club after scoring just one goal in 24 appearances for the Perth side.

Sutton was on the radar of several teams including Raith Rovers and Ayr United but St Mirren boss Alex Rae has now snapped him up.
