St Johnstone have welcomed James Brown to Perth on loan as he replaces departed Millwall team-mate Danny McNamara.

Republic of Ireland youth international McNamara was such a hit during his brief stint with Saints that New Den boss Gary Rowett opted to recall him from his scheduled year-long loan north of the border six months early.

But to soften the blow, the London outfit have now sent Brown to join Callum Davidson’s team until the end of the season.

The Dover-born defender arrives at McDiarmid Park with previous experience of playing in Scotland after joining Livingston on loan back in 2018 in between spells with Carlisle and Lincoln.
