St Johnstone are discussing a permanent deal with defender James Brown after his release from Millwall, following a loan spell in Perth.

Brown’s name will be remembered in St Johnstone history as part of the club’s League Cup and Scottish Cup double-winning squad, but it hasn’t been enough to win him a new deal with Millwall, who he will leave upon the expiry of his contract.

The 23-year-old made seven appearances on loan at St Johnstone from Millwall in the second half of the 2020/21 term. Manager Callum Davidson says he’s in talks with Brown: “We will now focus on trying to bring in one or two new players for the start of the season.

“We are also in discussions to bring James Brown back. We are all working very hard on a number of things in the background and we’ll keep our supporters updated.”
