St Mirren striker Duckens Nazon has revealed he could have signed for Dundee United in January. 

The Haiti international has hit two goals in his short spell in Paisley so far - including one against the Tannadice side in the Scottish Cup. 

But he has admitted he chose the challenge of fighting to stay in the Premiership rather than the fight to get promoted from the Scottish Championship. 

"I had many options in January but I chose St Mirren because I liked the challenge," he told the Gazette. "I had other offers in Scotland as Dundee United wanted me but I did not want to play in the second tier league. I know Dundee United are playing for promotion but we still have a chance here to save our place in the top league.This challenge is better than playing in the second league and trying to go up.”

Nazon fell out of favour with Marc Brys, manager of his Belgian parent club St Truiden. 

But his sole focus is on keeping Saints in the Premiership and then he will find out where his future lies.

He continued: "You don't make mistakes in life you just make choices. Imagine I go to St Truiden and score 10 goals and end up at Hoffenheim or something people would say that was good. It is not a mistake just a choice in my career. I took the option too quick but it was the fact that I was made a good offer by St Truiden and I couldn't say no. Maybe it was a good or bad decision - who knows? I have two years left in Belgium after this loan spell. I might smash it in the next year.

"I just came to St Mirren to help the team and of course I want to score goals and keep them in the Scottish Premiership.That is the most important thing right now and just playing football. My main focus is saving St Mirren.”
