Arbroath have missed out on bringing St Johnstone’s attacking midfielder Dylan Easton back to the club, as he has gone on loan to Championship side Dumbarton.
The 20-year-old has played three times for the Red Lichties since joining them last month on a temporary basis and manager Allan Moore was keen to extend his stay.
Moore said: “Dylan had done well for us and I wanted him to be with us for the rest of the season. It has not worked out as St Johnstone wanted him to play at a higher level.
“We will move on and look elsewhere.”
