St Johnstone seal deal for Dundalk striker McMillan

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright has backed David McMillan to show he can bring his all-round goalscoring game to Scotland after confirming a deal to sign the Irishman.

McMillan has signed until the summer of 2020 and will complete his move from Dundalk when the transfer window opens.

The 28-year-old former UCD, St Patrick's Athletic and Sligo Rovers striker netted 51 goals in four seasons with Dundalk.

Wright told St Johnstone's website: "David's a player I've known for quite some time and I knew he was coming out of contract and felt the time was right to make a move.

"He's scored all types of goals, left foot, right foot, headers and he's done it at various levels including European club football so he has experience of a higher level than just League of Ireland.

"He's a hard worker, a good age and without doubt capable of making the step up."
