DONE DEAL: Watford striker Alex Jakubiak joins St Mirren

Watford striker Alex Jakubiak has joined St Mirren on-loan to the end of the season.

Jakubiak, 23, will spend the rest of the season in Paisley after leaving a loan at Gillingham, where he played with fellow new recruit Lee Hodson.

St Mirren are the league's lowest scorers and manager Jim Goodwin believes that Jakubiak, who had a spell at Falkirk in 2018, could be the man to address their impotence.

"Most importantly, he's got an eye for goal," he said. "He's a player that can link the game up, he's got really good pace, he can get in behind.

"He did well when he was at Falkirk but we believe that with the experience he's had down in England since then that he'll be coming up to Scotland as an ever better player than he was then."
