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.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
