The Bosnia-Herzegovina international arrived at St Johnstone in October when Steven Anderson was sidelined with a dislocated thumb and Frazer Wright was out of action due to suspension.

Saints manager Tommy Wright revealed the decision to free the centre-back was to make funds available for the current transfer window.

Jahic is the second player to exit the Perth side in January after winger Gwion Edwards decided to return to his parent club Swansea.

Wright said: "Sanel is one I would like to have kept and he was willing to stay but I feel that what money we have to strengthen the squad has to be used in other areas."

Jahic made six appearances in his short spell at St Johnstone and he scored his only goal in the 2-0 victory over Livingston in the Scottish Cup in November.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
