St Johnstone are eyeing up a move for Dundalk defender Daniel Cleary as the exodus from Oriel Park look set to continue.

The Scottish Premiership side have the former Liverpool trainee on their radar as they look to bolster their squad.

Michael Duffy, Patrick McEleney and Will Patching have already departed the Lilywhites so far.

The futures of Greg Sloggett, Darragh Leahy, Sean Murray, Patrick Hoban, David McMillan and Cameron Dummigan are also unclear as the new owners at the Louth club work to try to salvage some of their star names who are all out of contract.

Saints boss Callum Davidson confirmed his interest in the Scottish media today.

"Dan is someone we have been looking at," said Davidson.

"I thought about him last summer but he was mid-season with Dundalk.

"We have contract offers out to a lot of players at the club so it's a case of looking at who is staying and who is likely to be going."

Bohemians are also said to be in interested in the 25-year-old.

Dundalk boss Vinny Perth also faces an uncertain future with no news on whether he will be staying on in the dugout after re-joining the club midway through the 2021 season.
