St Mirren are bracing for transfer interest in Lee Erwin from Turkish club Altay SK as the former Leeds United striker attracts a former suitor (Scottish Sun).

Erwin joined St Mirren from Ross County last September as he looked to come back to Scotland’s central belt. The striker returned to the SPFL from Leeds United permanently in 2017 but had a spell in Iran with Tractor between 2018-19.

Now another chance to move abroad presents itself to Erwin via Altay SK. The club were recently promoted to the Super Lig – the top-tier of Turkish football – and are managed by Mustafa Denizli, who took Erwin to Iran. He is lining up a move to sign the former Leeds United striker again this summer.

Jim Goodwin’s St Mirren prepared for the 2021/22 cinch Premiership season with a 3-0 win over Northern Irish side Linfield, Erwin scoring in the second half. The 27-year-old started his career at Motherwell and earned a big move to Leeds United in 2015. Since then, Erwin has had six different clubs, with one year still to run on his Saints deal.
