Stevie May could be on his way back to St Johnstone after all.
The Aberdeen striker was all set to make the switch to his old club a fortnight ago.
He passed a medical and was in line to make his second debut in Saints’ Betfred Cup tie at home to Brechin City.
However, when the deal collapsed at the last minute, Saints manager Tommy Wright described the move as “dead.”
Dundee tried to take advantage by making what manager James McPake described as a “very good offer.”
The 26-year-old, though, kept his options open.
Now it is understood the St Johnstone move has been resurrected. Talks are underway, with the transfer set to be concluded this week.
May, who is from Perth, was with the Saints from 2009 to 2014 before heading south to
join Sheffield Wednesday.
After a year, he moved to Preston, but his time at Deepdale was blighted by injury.
