According to Goal.com, the former Bristol Rovers ace is on the verge of joining St.Mirren after he reportedly reached a deal with the Scottish Premiership club.

The publication claims Ayunga will be moving to St.Mirren once the summer transfer window opens after he agreed a two-year deal with them.

The development comes after the Scottish club's boss, Stephen Robinso, let the cat out of the bag when he revealed his side have already signed four players with an announcement imminent.

Morecambe puts Jonah Ayunga on sale

Reports suggest St.Mirren made a move for Ayunga after Morecambe resolved to offload him ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

The 24-year-old had a difficult start to life at Morecambe, with an injury leaving him sidelined for at least two months.

However, he hit the ground running afterwards and has already scored six League One goals.

Ayunga came through at Dorchester City before Brighton snapped him up.
