Dummett re-joins St. Mirren on loan

St. Mirren announced Thursday that it has struck a deal with Newcastle to bring defender Paul Dummett back to St. Mirren Park on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old came up through the Newcastle youth system but began the 2012-13 season on loan with the Saints.

Dummett returned to Newcastle to make his Magpie debut in the club's defeat of Brighton in FA Cup action on January 5, but has now been allowed to return to the Scottish Premier League side where he made 19 appearances this term.
