St Mirren manager Danny Lennon is understood to be interested in Burnley striker Steven Thompson according to BBC Sport.
However, he doesn't sound too confident he can afford him and also thinks everything might be up in the air following the departure of Brian Laws.
Speaking to BBC Radio Scotland, Lennon said:
'He's certainly on the shopping list and I've made the proper inquiries but I think it's going to be outside our grasp,
'With Burnley losing their manager, there could be a new lease of life for Thommo. He scored the other day.
'If we don't get him this time, let's see what happens in the summer.'
The big question too is whether Thommo would relish a move back up to Scotland to play for the Scottish Premier League club.
His appearances have certainly been limited under Brian Laws but caretaker manager, Stuart Gray rewarded the former Cardiff striker with his first starting eleven place this season against Reading at the Madejski today. This was his first start since we played Stoke City at Turf Moor back in March 2010. Thompson has been ever present on the bench this season and scored his first goal of 2010-11 recently after coming on as a substitute against Sheffield United at home on New Year's Day.
The 32 year old, Paisley-born striker will be out of contract in May this year but the former Dundee United and Rangers forward might now be tempted to see if the new Burnley manager once known might be tempted to play him more and offer a new contract in the summer.
Clarets fans rate Thommo highly and feel he may have been hard done to under Laws. It would make sense to see who becomes our new manager and let the dust settle before making a rash decision to leave Turf Moor.
