ANOTHER three players have parted company with St Mirren as Oran Kearney continues his winter clearout.

Goalkeeper Dean Lyness and Academy graduate Conor O'Keefe have both left the club following the expiry of their contracts, while English winger Jeff King has moved on by mutual consent.

Lyness made four appearances for Saints, keeping one clean sheet, after joining on a short-term deal in September.
