St Johnstone are closing in on a deadline day deal for an English non-league striker.
Adama Sidibeh has 15 goals so far this season for Warrington Rylands of the Northern Premier League Premier Division, the seventh tier of the English pyramid.
His performances saw him linked earlier in January with EFL sides Blackpool, Salford City and Port Vale.

However, Courier Sport understands the 25-year-old hit man – described as “electric” by his current club – is close to agreeing a switch to Perth.
All going smoothly, Saints boss Craig Levein, who has talked of his desire to add pace and power up top, should get his man ahead of Thursday’s 11:30pm Scottish transfer deadline.
