St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin has been left pleased with the Paisley club’s recruitment drive this week after signing three new players, including Scott Tanser, a target for English clubs like Sheffield Wednesday.

It was reported last week that Sheffield Wednesday were one of a host of clubs after the St Johnstone left-back, who has just won a League and Scottish Cup double. Instead he has committed to a one-year deal in Paisley, with striker Curtis Main and winger Greg Kiltie joining from Shrewsbury Town and Kilmarnock respectively on two-year deals.

Goodwin said of his business, which is now up to four transfers alongside the signing of Motherwell centre-back Charles Dunne: “Scott Tanser is one who knows the league and has been outstanding at left-wing back for St. Johnstone this season. He’s a very good athlete, great delivery.

“He was instrumental in some of the really good performances that St. Johnstone had. I’ve been speaking to Scott since January time, really with him and his agent trying to get something done and I’m delighted that today he has agreed to come in. Greg is a really good young player.

“He has had a really good season in a Kilmarnock team that has struggled, to be perfectly honest. He’s very creative, very direct, and positive in his thinking when he receives the ball, he wants to go forward, he wants to get shots off and tries to create good goal-scoring opportunities for his teammates around him.

“Curtis is a physical, strong centre-forward who will be a great addition to the squad and gives me four very good strikers now to choose from with Brophy, Dennis, and Erwin as well. He’s the right character for us as well, he’s the right temperament and a real leader both on and off the pitch. ”
