St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce the loan signing of Thierry Small on loan until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old returns to the Buddies from English Championship side Southampton having already had a loan spell at Saints from January until the end of last season.
Thierry made 15 appearances during his time at Saints last season and rejoins Stephen Robinson's squad on a season-long loan.
The manager admitted the wing-back was someone the club had been keen to bring back this season.
He told stmirren.com: "Thierry is someone we've chased all summer.
We got glimpses of his potential last season: his pace, his energy and his quality. We're hoping for more that again.
"We know him as a person. We know his strengths and weaknesses. He's a still a young kid and we aim to keep developing him, but certainly I feel he'll be a big asset for the squad.
"We've only had one in at left-back and left wing-back which has meant moving others around and out of their best positions for cover.
"Scott Tanser has been excellent for me, but Thierry brings real competition in that area and he can also play in at right wing-back and can play further up the pitch. In a tight squad, Thierry gives me a multitude of options."
