St Mirren have announced the signing of Conor Mccarthy on a two and a half year deal from Cork City for an undisclosed fee.
St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin said: “Conor ticks all the boxes.
“With Sean McLoughlin going back to Hull it was a position that we had to bring in at least one.
“Conor is one that we looked at in the summer but couldn’t do anything about it then. But with the Irish League finishing in November we were able to put things in motion and thankfully we have been able to agree a deal with Cork City and with Conor.
“I have seen him in the flesh, Gus has seen him in the flesh and we have watched a lot of footage on him. The references that we got from people that I know over there were fantastic as well.”
