Cillian Sheridan is happy to have extended his loan at St Johnstone and is hoping Francisco Sandaza does not leave the club in the transfer window.

Former Celtic striker Sheridan formed an impressive partnership with Sandaza during the first half of the season and he has now agreed to stay at McDiarmid Park from CSKA Sofia.

Sheridan, who has been sidelined since the end of November due to a hamstring injury, admits it would have been 'bad' if he had not decided to remain with Steve Lomas' side.

He is also keen for Sandaza to stick with the Saints after the Spaniard was linked with a move to reigning SPL champions Rangers.

Sandaza is out of contract at the end of the season and Sheridan is keen to renew the partnership with his team-mate once he is fit again.

"I'm happy to be staying," said Sheridan in the Daily Record. "St Johnstone have looked after me during my injury and it would have been bad to walk out on them.

"Me and Fran had a good partnership before I got injured and I wouldn't want to see him leave during the transfer window."
