Jamie McCart is attracting interest from English Championship club Swansea City as the St Johnstone defender gains interest before the transfer deadline (DR).

The summer window shuts next week and clubs are making final preparations for their squads for the ongoing seasons. McCart has been in-demand all summer and Swansea City are the latest entrants into the race.

Bournemouth are also said to be keen on the defender while fellow Scottish Premiership side Hibs have held a long-standing interest in McCart. The centre-back has been excellent for St Johnstone since arriving in 2020.

He was one of former manager Tommy Wright’s final signings and it was an inspired move, McCart forming part of the back three which helped St Johnstone win a League Cup and Scottish Cup double last season. Saints were eliminated from Europe on Thursday after a Europa Conference League play-off second-leg defeat to Austrians LASK.

 

Swansea City have recently appointed former Scotland international Russell Martin as their new head coach. St Johnstone travel to St Mirren on Sunday as the return to Premiership action after a testing European football schedule.

Manager Callum Davidson’s side have started the season with two draws and a defeat in the league this season as they managed Europa League and Europa Conference League football. They will now focus on Premiership football and retaining their domestic cups.
