Thompson returns home
Former Burnley striker Steven Thompson has agreed a two-year contract with his boyhood club, St Mirren.
Thompson expressed a desire to return to Scotland when his daughter was going to start school.
He told the club's official website, "It has been a life-long ambition of mine to play for St Mirren as they were my first love in football. It will be a brilliant moment for me when I pull on a Saints jersey for the first time and I`m really looking forward to it."
'I did have interest from other clubs in Scotland and a few in England as well but once I decided to come back to Scotland I told my agent that there was only place I wanted to go and thankfully that is happening.
'I'm really delighted that the move to St Mirren has come together and I can't wait to get started.'
