St Mirren have confirmed the loan signing of goalkeeper Jordan Holmes from English Premier League side Bournemouth FC until the end of he season.

The Australian, who penned a new deal with the Cherries at the end of last season after signing back in 2013, becomes the Buddies' second signing of the day after the arrival of Kyle McAllister on loan from Derby County.

Holmes was part of the first-team set up under Eddie Howe last year, travelling with the side to Anfield and Stamford Bridge as well being named on the bench against Manchester United in the final game of the 2017/18 season.

Speaking to, Oran Kearney said: "It’s all happened quite quickly. "Obviously Danny Rogers was out for a period of time earlier in the season with a knee injury and he has hurt the knee again. There’s been a scan there and it looks like he might be out again for another period of time.

"With that it opens the door for Jordan. He is someone we know through sources in the game and has a good pedigree. He was keen to come up and is looking to forge a good career in the game for himself."

Jordan joins Kyle McAllister, Greg Tansey, Brad Lyons, Vaclav Hladky and Mihai Popescu in joining St Mirren this month. All six could be in line to make their Saints' debuts tomorrow against Alloa in the Scottish Cup.
