Mihai Popescu joins Saints on-loan until the end of the season

St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Romanian defender Mihai Popescu on a six-month loan from Dinamo Bucharest subject to international clearance.

The 25 year-old joins the club until the end of the season with Saints having an option to buy the centre-half.

Popescu began his career Dinamo Bucharest and was part of the Voluntari side that won the Romanian Supercup in 2017. 

Speaking on the move, Popescu said: "I signed the contract today and hope to start training tomorrow.

"It is my first experience outside Romania and I think it is a good opportunity for me and my career.

"I think this is a good team here in Scotland and I am glad to be here. I hope to be able to help this team."

St Mirren manager Oran Kearney said: “Mihai is someone who is at a good age.

"He’s 25 and he’s not one who is coming here to cut his teeth in football.

"He has plenty of games behind him and plenty of experience in a very tough league.

"It’s one we’re very confident on and hopefully he’ll be a great signing."
