St Johnstone have completed the capture of Falkirk winger Jack Compton on a short-term loan agreement.

The deal will keep the 23-year-old with the Saints until the end of the season.

Compton has spent the last two years at Falkirk, but he has struggled to make an impact.

As a result, he was loaned out to League Two outfit Bradford in August.

He made 21 appearances for the Bantams, but has returned to Scotland at the end of his deal.

St Johnstone have snapped him up with it apparent that he does not figure in Steven Pressley's plans at Falkirk.

His arrival casts doubt over the likelihood of Willie Gibson extending his loan spell from Crawley, which runs out next week.
