ST MIRREN have confirmed the signing of two goalkeepers and former Hull midfielder Kealan Dillon.

David Cornell joins Saints on a season-long loan from Swansea, while 19-year-old Frenchman Christopher Dilo has signed a one-year contract after moving from Blackburn.

Cornell, 22, made his Swansea debut almost four years ago and the Wales Under-21 international had a previous loan spell at Hereford. Manager Danny Lennon told the club’s official website: “Swansea are a football club that share a very similar philosophy to ourselves so I know David will come in here and fit the criteria in every department that we want.

“Chris was with us for a while at the tail end of last season. Looking forward he shows great potential and with the quality coaching he’ll get from Paul Mathers I’m sure we’ll see him challenging for the ’keeper’s spot sooner rather than later.”

Saints also confirmed that Dillon had signed a one-year deal.

Lennon said: “Kealan is a midfielder and we had a look at him a couple of times last season and what he showed us was great commitment on and off the pitch, and we are looking for big things from him as we look to invest in not only the immediate future but the long-term future for our football club.”
