St Johnstone have announced the season-long loan capture of Luke Robinson from Wigan Athletic for the 23/24 campaign.

The young Scottish defender has been at the Latics since joining from Wrexham’s youth set-up in 2018.

Robinson had a breakout season for Wigan in the 2020/21 season making 24 appearances in England's League One. Robinson also has experience at U18 and U19 international level with Scotland.

After penning his loan deal, Robinson told Saints TV: “It was a no-brainer to sign here for the season. It was quite a quick turnaround the get the deal done. I heard about interest late last week and everything was done in quick fashion which was really good.

“The manager expressed his thoughts and views for myself and for the season. I bought into his ideas straight away. His message was really clear and he came across really well. He told me what he expects from me and I look forward to trying to live up to his expectations.

“I was unlucky with a bad injury last year but I see it almost as a blessing. I learned a lot about myself and I feel I have come back 10 times better than I ever was. I’m ready to kick on properly now.

“I know Ross Sinclair from the Scotland youth team level and he spoke really highly of the club and the boys here. He told me I’ll fit in well, I’m just very excited to get stuck in and get started.

“I’m a very honest, willing, energetic player and I pride myself a lot on defending. Equally, I like to try to get forward and give fans something to be excited about.

“I’m here to play well for myself, for the team and for the manager. I want to achieve top things while I’m here and can’t wait to get started.”
