Ross County have agreed a free for the immediate transfer of St Mirren right-back Jason Naismith, according to reports.
The youngster came through the youth ranks in Paisley before becoming a key player for the Buddies over the last few seasons.
Reports of a pre-contract agreement between Naismith and County first surfaced earlier this month, with the Scotland under-21 cap initially agreeing to move north in the Summer.
However, with the departure of Slovakian defender Erik Cikos, the Dingwall club are now in a position to bring Naismith in sooner.
The figure agreed between the clubs has not yet been announced but the deal is expected to be finalised later day.
