Rumor Central: SKC's Dwyer to St. Mirren on loan

A step down in quality could be just what little-used Sporting KC rookie Dom Dwyner needs to get on the field, and it looks like St. Mirren of the Scottish Premier League are ready to offer it.

STV Sport out of Scotland say that Saints skipper Danny Lennon has the striker in Paisley for training right now, with an eye toward a wintertime loan. Dwyer, who was born and raised in England, would not require a work permit.

"I became aware of Dom through an agent," Lennon told STV. "Kansas City's season is over and there are one or two of the MLS players trying to get over [to Britain]. It has been on the back burner for a month to six weeks, but Dom is over now.

"It would only be a short-term one for us so we will have to wait and see but the reports we have had on him are positive."

Dwyer got on the field but once for Sporting in his rookie season, playing four minutes. St. Mirren currently sit 11th in the 12-team SPL.
