St Mirren are making a move to sign Kilmarnock’s Eamonn Brophy this month rather than wait until the summer, STV has learned.
The forward has already signed a pre-contract agreement to join Jim Goodwin’s side in the summer.
However, St Mirren don’t want to wait until summer and aim to take Brophy to the club this month.
It’s not yet clear if Kilmarnock will allow the 24-year-old to depart Rugby Park before the January transfer deadline.
Brophy began his professional career with Hamilton and had loan spells with Queen’s Park and Dumbarton but the forward moved to Kilmarnock in 2017.
He has been a consistent scorer for the club, reaching double figures for the club in the last two seasons, and made his Scotland debut in May 2019.
