St Mirren moved late to complete their last piece of transfer business, securing the services of Brandon Mason on a season-long loan from Coventry City, who have an option to recall in January.
The left-back made 17 appearances last season for Mark Robins’ side as they achieved promotion from League One to the Championship. It’s been decided now though that he will depart Coventry for more minutes in Paisley.
It was the second bit of Deadline Day business from Jim Goodwin following the signing of Daniel Finlayson from Rangers earlier on Monday.
Mason was brought up in the Watford academy, spending time out on loan at Dundee United whilst still with the Hornets. He’s made 46 appearances since moving to Coventry and this is his first loan spell away from the club.
Saints fans may have to wait a while for his debut at St Mirren Park. Mason picked up a medial collateral ligament injury recently, which could keep him out of action for six-eight weeks.
Goodwin takes his men into action on Wednesday night in League Cup competition against Partick Thistle.
