St Johnstone have confirmed the arrival of goalkeeper Conor Mitchell on a season-long loan from Burnley.
The 22-year-old is a former Northern Ireland international and will provide competition for current number one, Zander Clark.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the club,” Mitchell told the club website.
“As soon as I heard about St. Johnstone’s interest in me I jumped at the chance to come here.
“My aim for this season was always to get myself out on loan and breakaway from the academy system. Scotland is a great place for me because it provides a good platform if I do well and it is great exposure.
“As a big football fan and a Northern Irish lad, I’ve followed the career of the manager and the fact he was a goalkeeper as well can only be a good thing for me.
“I’m looking forward to getting going and showing what I can do and I’m really excited about the season ahead at St Johnstone.”
