St Mirren completed a deadline day double swoop with both Duckens Nazon and Laurențiu Corbu signing late last night. 

Nazon, a 24-year-old Haiti international who has an impressive 15 goals in 24 caps, signs from Belgian Pro League side Sint-Truiden on loan until the end of the season.

The striker joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2017, while in the Midlands he had loan spells at Oldham and Coventry, scoring a combined 14 goals. 

And Paisley boss Oran Kearney was pleased to fill the centre forward void but was again adamant about waiting for the right player.

He said:  "I think all supporters have been crying out for someone who will play that number nine role. He has really good qualities, carrying the ball and physically as well.

"He is very powerful and we have probably lacked that physical presence up-front to help Simeon Jackson and others who have played up there. We feel like getting someone like Duckens on board will be a massive help.

"We’ve done a huge amount of work on it. It’s been very much one of patience and we have said all along that we would rather wait to try and get the right players in than sign for the sake of signing.

"There’s a hunger from him to get over and get playing again. He is a Haiti international but has lived and played in England for a few years and that was important for us."

The Buddies have also signed Laurențiu Corbu on loan until the end of the season from Dinamo Bucharest, subject to international clearance.

The Romanian right back, 24, joins former teammate Mihai Popescu in Paisley, and the deal contains an option for him to become a permanent signing in the summer.
