Charlie Gilmour says he’s looking forward to being part of an ‘exciting period’ at St Johnstone after the Arsenal academy graduate signed a two-year deal.

Unai Emery handed Gilmour a senior breakthrough at Arsenal but couldn’t sustain a regular first-team spot, released in 2019, joining Norwich City that summer before leaving the Carrow Road side a year later. He spent six months without a club before St Johnstone signed him in January this year, making three appearances so far.

The former Arsenal midfielder has signed for the League Cup and Scottish Cup holders until the summer of 2023, Gilmour saying: “I feel very settled at St Johnstone. Everyone at the Football Club has made me welcome and there is a great working environment.

“I’d like to thank the manager, the Chairman, the Board and Scott Boyd for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this exciting period. I am enjoying working with the Manager and his coaching staff and my game has improved in the four months I have been here.

“I know there is much more to come from me. The lads have had a brilliant season.”
