Wales winger George Williams has joined St Johnstone on loan from Fulham for the rest of the season.

And Saints have taken Manchester United midfielder Matty Willock, 21, on loan.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland midfielder Paul Paton, 30, has left St Johnstone by mutual consent after 19 months at McDiarmid Park.

Williams, 22, won the first of his seven caps aged 18 in 2014 against Netherlands but has not played for Championship Fulham since January 2016.

His only appearance this season has been for Fulham Under-21s in the Football League Trophy, scoring in a 3-3 draw with Portsmouth.

He played 15 times on loan to League One side MK Dons last season.
