Yeovil Town striker Adam Morgan is being linked with a move north of the border, following failed trials with League One sides Chesterfield and Rochdale. Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone are claimed to be attempting to sign him according to The Courier newspaper, which fits with yesterday's news that the 20 year old's trial at Spotland had been curtailed.
The paper suggests that Saints manager Tommy Wright had tried to sign Morgan last summer, whilst he was still a Liverpool player, but he decided to make the switch to Huish Park instead. However, with Morgan no longer part of Yeovil Town's plans, having made just three starts since his arrival in November, any approach from them for Morgan's services would doubtless be accepted. There are no quotes or sources to substantiate their interest, but Morgan was linked with a move to an unnamed Scottish club at the start of pre-season, only to turn up playing for the Spireites a few days later.
St Johnstone are currently Scottish Cup holders, having defeated Dundee United at the end of last season to lift the trophy, with their second goal on the day being scored by former Glovers striker Steve MacLean, who is still with the club. As a result of that win, St Johnstone are currently playing in Europa League qualifying matches, and are currently travelling out to Slovakia to face Spartak Trnava tomorrow night. Hence any interest they may have in Morgan at this stage may not be realised until they return from their European adventures.
