St Mirren have signed former Hamilton midfielder Tony Andreu.

The Frenchman spent the last six months of the 2018/19 season on loan at New Douglas Park, but has now opted to sign for their bottom-half rivals St Mirren, who narrowly avoided relegation after a dramatic play-off victory over Dundee United.

Andreu signed a one-year-deal to become new manager's Jim Goodwin's first signing after being released by Coventry City.

The 31-year-old, who also spent two years at Hamilton between 2013-2015, flew out to Spain with the St Mirren squad on Monday for their pre-season training camp.

Andreu said: "I feel very happy to be here. It was really nice to hear that St Mirren wanted me because I think it is a great club.

"I think the last couple of months that the club has done a really great job. It was an easy decision for me to come here because I have seen what the players and what the club are capable of.

"I had a great chat with the gaffer. He really wants to achieve great things with this club and I think after a minute speaking with him he convinced me with his passion."

After leaving Hamilton for Norwich City in 2015, Andreu only managed nine games at Carrow Road in a spell that saw him join Dundee United on loan for a season.

He also spent a season at Livingston in 2012.

Goodwin said: "I'm delighted to get Tony in. As soon as I heard he was available it was a new brainer for me.

"He ticks a lot of boxes with regards of how I want us to play this season. He's very fit, technically really good, has great timing in the box and hopefully he'll get us a few goals."
