May, who also held talks with Wednesday's Championship rivals Rotherham, heads to England after scoring 67 goals in just 118 appearances in his career so far.

The 21-year-old began his career with the Saints and made a goal-scoring senior debut when he stepped off the bench aged just 16.

May joined Alloa Athletic on loan in 2011 to earn some first-team experience and scored almost a goal a game, finishing with 19 from 22 appearances.

The Scotland Under-21 forward joined Hamilton Academicals on loan, scored 25 goals in 33 games, and was named the SFL Phenomenal Young Player of the Season. 

May returned to McDiarmid Park last season and scored 27 goals to help the Saints reach the Scottish FA Cup for their first time in their history.

The Scotland U21 striker also found the target in the Europa League last Thursday in what was his swansong for the club.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
