The prospect of first team football with St Johnstone has seen Manchester United starlet Matty Willock swap the Netherlands for McDiarmid Park for the second half of the season.
The 21-year-old midfielder agreed a loan deal with Saints on the same day that Welsh international George Williams was also brought in through to the summer.
Willock spent the first half of the campaign with Utrecht after making the bench at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho.
He said: “I was meant to be there for the season and they wanted to keep me.
“I really enjoyed it in Holland and it was a good experience. But this is a great opportunity for me and I’m looking forward to playing in Scotland.
“There was a change of manager at Utrecht and I didn’t play as much as I’d have liked. I’m grateful that they agreed to release me from the loan to come here.
“I know St Johnstone have done well in recent seasons and I am here to play and hopefully I can help the club have another successful finish.”
Perth boss Wright, who isn’t ruling out adding a free agent to his squad, was delighted to get new faces on board on deadline day.
He said: “I knew about Matty and he will be a big asset for us. We jumped at the opportunity to get him here and he goes straight into the squad for the game with Hearts.
“He has a good pedigree, moving from Arsenal to Old Trafford as a kid and they thought enough of him to hand out a two-year deal last summer.
“I’m grateful to Man United for their help because it isn’t simple bringing a player back who is already on a loan deal abroad.
“Matty is strong, athletic and over six feet. He is comfortable playing the holding role or further forward.
“It’s great that he regards coming to St Johnstone and Scotland as an opportunity to further his career.”
Williams (22), who was in Chris Coleman’s squad at Euro 2016, can’t feature at Tynecastle because of a minor injury.
“We had George signed-up on Tuesday and I am delighted to get him here,” said Wright, who had been linked with Aberdeen’s Scott Wright and Derby County’s Luke Thomas.
“Unfortunately he has picked up a wee knock in training which will keep him out of the Hearts game.
“It’s unfortunate but it’s not a major problem. He should be fine in seven to 10 days and back in training with us next week.
“It is a great opportunity for George and I know his qualities. You don’t get seven international caps for Wales at his age without having something a bit about you.
“I want him to get back to that sort of level by playing regular first team football.
“I think George will bring a lot to the top end of the pitch for us. He has pace and he has trickery. He is also a good finisher.
“I have brought him to play on the left hand side for us but he can be a number 10 if required.”
