The Northern Ireland Under-21 international has returned from a loan spell with Stockport County, who are keen to get him back on a temporary basis, and has committed his future to The Saints until 2006.
If Blayney does leave again on loan, he will not be alone as Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed that they intend to sign Garry Monk.
"Gordon Strachan has been marvellous in letting Garry come here and offering us Kevin Davies," stated Owls boss Chris Turner.
"Kevin's agent wanted to see what happens when the transfer window re-opens, which I understand, so that is being held over until after Christmas.
"Garry is a competitive centre back who has played in The Premiership."
Strachan knows Turner from their time together with Manchester United under Ron Atkinson.
Meanwhile, James Beattie (pictured) has picked up a £10,000 cheque from Barclaycard after being the first player to net ten Premiership goals this term.
The in-form striker achieved the landmark with his double blast against Birmingham City last weekend.
