St Mirren complete signing of Djemba-Djemba

St Mirren have completed the signing of former Manchester United midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba, subject to international clearance.

The 32-year-old completed a medical on Wednesday, and has penned a deal that will see him stay with the Scottish Premiership outfit until the end of the season.

Djemba-Djemba had most recently been with Serbian side Partizan, but he was deemed surplus to requirements and had his contract cancelled in December.

St Mirren have acted swiftly to tie up a deal for the Cameroon international, and he adds to the permanent signing of Gregg Wylde and loan deals for Aberdeen's Josh Magennis and Newcastle United's Adam Campbell, who all joined in the January transfer window.

Having started his career with Nantes in France, Djemba-Djemba earned a move to Premier League champions Manchester United in 2003, but after an unsuccessful stint he moved to fellow English top-flight side Aston Villa.

Djemba-Djemba has also had spells at the likes of Burnley, Odense and Hapoel Tel Aviv.

He has been capped on 24 occasions by Cameroon, and collected a winner's medal at the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations as well as playing at the FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan in the same year.

St Mirren currently occupy ninth position in the Scottish Premiership.
