Birchall: Set for St Mirren
Skysports.com understands Coventry City midfielder Chris Birchall is due to join St Mirren.
The Trinidad & Tobago international joined The Sky Blues from Port Vale last summer, but is set for a loan move to the SPL.
Birchall is expected to link up with St Mirren until January in order to secure regular first-team football.
The 23-year-old's sole appearance this season came as a substitute in the first round of the Carling Cup against Notts County.
He has struggled for opportunities since Iain Dowie took over as manager at The Ricoh Arena and is aiming to finalise a loan move before the close of the transfer window.
St Mirren have enjoyed an encouraging start to the new SPL season and sit seventh in the table after picking up six points from four games.
