As things stand, 11 out of the 12 cinch Premiership teams have added to their squad this month with St Mirren the only club yet to make a signing.
Buddies boss Jim Goodwin has been open regarding his desire to sign a winger to add pace and a bit of unpredictability to his squad.
What it has shown is clubs are really keen to do business early before the league resumes on Monday when Hibs travel to face Celtic at Parkhead. The winter break being brought forward due to the restrictions placed on crowd numbers by the Scottish Government has allowed for that focus on the transfer market. That being said, clubs prepare for the January window months in advance.
With regards to the restrictions, Partick Thistle have appealed for the capacity limit to be lifted ahead of the weekend’s action with the Jags set to host Kilmarnock.
The club said: "As well as the significant financial impact on Thistle, this decision means our fans face another game where the majority cannot attend and we cannot welcome opposition fans.
“We have asked the question to see if there is any scope to bring the date forward as we owe it to our fans to try. We know it’s a long shot and unlikely to be changed but the right thing to do was to state our case rather than simply accept being disadvantaged again.”
