St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce that Isak Thorvaldsson is the latest player that will #BeInThatNumber after agreeing a season-long loan with Saints.
The 19 year-old Icelandic midfielder joins us on the temporary deal from English side Norwich City. The Canaries retain the option to recall Isak in January.
Capped at U19 level for Iceland, Isak began his career with his local club Afturelding before joining Norwich City in 2017. In January 2020, Isak signed a loan deal with English League One play-off semi-finalists Fleetwood Town.
He becomes our second signing of the afternoon following the announcement of Joe Shaughnessy at 4pm.
Speaking to stmirren.com, Isak said: "I'm really excited to get back to playing after meeting all the boys.
"I spoke to Akin [Famewo] before coming here and he only said positive things about the club. I don't know much about Scottish football but St Mirren seem like a good club to come to and hopefully we'll do well this season.
"I'm an explosive player who likes to get into tackles and fight for the team. I just want to help the team as much as I can and show what I'm capable of."
On the signing, manager Jim Goodwin said: "We've managed to develop a really good relationship with the guys at Norwich and had great success with Akin last season.
"Isak is an Iceland youth international and will probably be in the U21 squad for them when it next comes about.
"He's a midfielder who can do a little bit of everything. He's a physical player but also technically very good and I'm really looking forward to seeing him."
