McClean Joins Wigan Athletic

Defender Jason Kerr and Northern Ireland international Ali McCann have left St Johnstone.

Kerr, who started his career at the Perth club seven years ago, has joined Wigan in a deal worth around £600,000.

The 24-year-old captained the Scottish Premiership club to a historic League Cup and Scottish Cup double last season but has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the League One side.

Saints chairman, Steve Brown, said: "During this transfer window, we have rejected bids for Jason, but Wigan Athletic met our valuation. From a club and, in particular, a financial point of view, it was an offer we could not turn down."

McCann, 21, has also left McDiarmid Park after joined Preston in a £1.2m deal - a figure that could rise above £1.75m with add-ons.
