Sky Sports understands that St Johnstone are lining up a move for former Swansea midfielder Scott Donnelly.
The 24-year-old is available as a free agent after being released by the Swans over the summer.
He has spent much of the last two seasons on loan at Wycombe having found it difficult to make an impact in South Wales.
Trial spells at Bradford and Southend were taken in following his exit from the Liberty Stadium, but he remains without a club.
St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas could, however, be about to offer the former Queens Park Rangers trainee a route to Scottish football.
Lomas was at Loftus Road with Donnelly as he graduated out of the academy ranks and is well aware of what the goalscoring midfielder could add to his squad.
