Was reading the Hibs v United match report from Friday night and saw that McGinn came on for Hibs after his spell out injured and played very well and scored a terrific solo goal. McGinn might be our saving grace in the next 18 months or so as if he keeps up his good form and gets a big money move then St Mirren will see a 1/3 of any fee Hibs get.

Would love to see him win the title with Hibs and move on for £2-3 million in the summer with saints landing a healthy windfall which could help us cope with a drop into league One and possibly remain full time to get us out of the league.

He is our only hope of getting a significant cash sum into our beloved club.

Neil Lennon has a knack of selling on players to England for large sums of cash so here's hoping McGinn is the next one. Also Celtic could could do worse than turn to McGinn as he has attributes to go to the very top.

Keep up the good work John!

Just trying to start a positive thread as there is currently very little positive to mention about the club after yesterday's shambles.

Bump!

This poster knows his stuff.   

What a windfall this will be. A memorable day for the buds.

Announced as an undisclosed fee. How does that work then?

Only undisclosed publically. 

The relevant governing bodies and clubs involved will have sale/purchase and contract details. 

Probably best that teams we might be dealing with don't know how much we get.

The sell on fee percentage being a perennial reward for future sales is a great reward as long as the the player is bought rather than moving on out of contract. It means we as fans have more of a vested interest in former players doing well and is vindication of our investment in the youth policy adopted by the club. Hopefully that is the case...

I think he’ll go from strength to strength down south. If he does well with Villa you could easily see a £10million+ move in a year or two, specifically because of the cash in English football and because he has that potential.

Celtic have lost out big time as he seemed the natural successor to Brown.

In summary, great player, lots of potential, great move for him, Saints and Hibs and hopefully the gift that keeps on giving...well done Gilmour and co for your negotiation skills and to all those instrumental in his development in the youth teams at Saints as well as the managers who played him regularly and gave him time to develop.

Well summed up Bart.

Best wishes to John McGinn. Excellent career path - great to see a player who contributed to the St Mirren cause get two good moves and should be made for life. I will certainly be keeping an eye on Sunderland and Villa’s results this season as an aside from watching us.

Well played son.

Great move for John and all the best. Personally I think Celtic have blown it big time and the only chance of them ever signing him will be if he does a Thommo. Sportsound reckoned that Celtic were offering their top wage scale and Villa doubled it. I can see John playing in the Premier league for many years to come.

In fairness I asked the question which makes me the dafty not Ricky.

So any chance we can celebrate this positive turn of events, rather than using it as another opportunity to have a pop at Ricky.
