Southampton Academy graduate Alfie Jones yesterday completed a loan move out to north of the border side St Mirren.

The 20-year-old joins last season’s Scottish Championship winners as they make the step up to Scotland’s top-flight and he will be looking to help them improve on their start to the year.

He has just recently signed a new two-year deal at the club so we more than see a future in him, and this loan will be designed to bring him up another level as he continues his development in the game.

The centre-back by trade, but capable of slotting into midfield, will certainly give his new club options and it should help him gain additional game time, so hopefully this will be a win, win move for all parties.

Reacting to the news on social media, Saints fans rightly wished him well for the year ahead and they thought it would be a good spell for the youngster.

Onwards and upwards for the lad, I’m sure I’m not alone in now keeping a close eye on how get gets on.
