Josh Heaton signs for Saints

St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Josh Heaton for an undisclosed fee – the largest fee Saints have paid for a player in around 25 years.

The 21 year-old defender penned a three-year deal with the Buddies to become Alan Stubbs’ first Saints signing.

The Buddies beat off competition from English Premier League and Championship clubs to secure the signing of the highly-thought of defender.

Speaking on joining the Buddies, Josh said: "I can't wait to get going.

"The thought of playing against the big teams and striving to be the best and play first team football was something that brought me here.

"Every time I step on that park I want to win. I want to keep a clean sheet and I want our strikers to score as many goals as possible. I want to win games and I want to win trophies." 

Saints manager Alan Stubbs said: "I'm absolutely delighted.

"It's a sign of intent and I'd like to thank the board for putting their trust in me.

"You only have to look at the clubs who were wanting to get Josh and to have got him it's quite a coup."

Chief Executive Tony Fitzpatrick added: "It’s a significant outlay and represents our commitment to Alan and our supporters as we try to build a side that will be competitive in the Premiership.

"There was definite interest in Josh from clubs down south and we are delighted that he has chosen to join St Mirren."
