Celtic striker Cillian Sheridan has joined St Johnstone in a loan deal until the end of the season.
Saints boss Derek McInnes has long-since been tracking the 20-year-old Irishman, who has just completed a stint at Plymouth where he failed to find the net in 14 appearances.
Sheridan played 15 games for Motherwell in the second half of last season, scoring twice.
McInnes has spoken of his delight at landing his man: "He's a player that I've tried to get on a couple of occasions. I'm delighted to get him on board.
"He'll give us competition; he's a different type of striker to the ones we have.
"Hopefully, he'll be good for us and us for him."
Saints' leading scorer Collin Samuel is out for another three weeks with an injury picked up in early December.
Kenny Deuchar has struggled for form and fellow forwards Steven Milne and Peter MacDonald have also had spells out injured.
