Former Gillingham and Norwich City frontman Simeon Jackson is currently training with Ladbrokes Premiership club St Mirren as he looks to earn himself a deal at The Simple Digital Arena.

The 31-year-old Kingston-born striker is currently without a club after leaving Sky Bet League One club Walsall in the summer.

The Daily Record has reported that Jackson is currently training with St Mirren and there is a chance that the player could be offered a deal by The Buddies. The striker has played for the Paisley-based club in a behind-closed-doors friendly match and new St Mirren boss Oran Kearney is thought to be set to extend his assessment of Jackson.

The striker started his career with the now-defunct club Rushden & Diamonds when he netted 42 goals in 93 matches. In January 2008, Jackson made a £150,000 move to Gillingham where he bagged the same number of goals in 115 outings.

Following two-and-a-half years at Priestfield Stadium, Jackson joined Norwich City but after netting 13 times in his first season at Carrow Road, the goals dried up. The striker was released by The Canaries in summer 2013 and Jackson has since represented seven different clubs including the likes of Millwall, Barnsley, Coventry City and Walsall.

As Jackson is currently a free agent, he is permitted to join St Mirren outside of the transfer window should he continue to impress manager Kearney.
