Experienced striker Steven Thompson admits he is fulfilling a lifelong ambition after signing a two-year contract to join St Mirren.
Thompson was released by Burnley last month and the former Rangers and Dundee United had been keen to secure a return to the SPL.
The 32-year-old has now agreed a deal with St Mirren and revealed he ignored interest from other clubs in order to join Danny Lennon's side.
"It has been a lifelong ambition of mine to play for St Mirren as they were my first love in football," Thompson told the club's official website.
"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."
