Buddies take Dummett on loan

Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett has joined St Mirren on

loan until January, Buddies manager Danny Lennon has confirmed.

The Wales Under-21 left-back will go into the Saints squad for

Saturday’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Aberdeen at

Pittodrie pending international clearance.

Dummett, 20, was loan to Blue Square Premier League side

Gateshead last season.

Lennon said: “I first came across him a year ago but I got a

call yesterday afternoon which reignited interest. It works well

for both parties and I am delighted.”

Lennon also confirmed that he is looking at Franco Miranda with

a view to offering him a deal.

The versatile 27-year-old Argentine, who previously enjoyed a

two-year loan stint at the Paisley club, is a free agent after

leaving Patronato.

Lennon said: “We will look at him for the next week to 10

days.”
