St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright has confirmed he has signed a striker who Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes is the most natural finisher he has ever seen.
Saints may be in Slovakia on important Europa League business but there has been no let-up in the speculation surrounding the future of the club’s prize asset Stevie May.
Sheffield Wednesday became the latest club to make a bid for the Scotland Under-21 star at the start of this week, joining Rotherham United in trying to lure the front man down south.
It is virtually certain that May will be departing McDiarmid sooner rather than later which is why Wright has now bolstered his striking options with a loan deal for League One Yeovil’s Adam Morgan.
The 20-year-old began his career at Anfield where he made a big impression on Fowler, and he is now set to link up at Perth.
While one striker arrives, Wright confirmed that talks will continue over the possibility of May departing.
He said: “Things could continue in the background. The chairman (Steve Brown) will speak to me and keep me informed. But I think it’s good another club is involved and one of Sheffield Wednesday’s size.”
