FORMER St Mirren star Jure Travner could be set for a dramatic return to the Paisley club just 12 months after quitting the SPL.
Express Sports understands that the talented full-back is high up on a list of possible transfer targets currently being mulled over by Buddies boss Danny Lennon.
The Saints gaffer is keen to find a ball-playing replacement for Dutch defender Jereon Tesselaar who is expected to pen a deal with SPL rivals Kilmarnock today and may be tempted to offer the silky Slovenian a return ticket to Paisley.
If Lennon, right, does decide to make a move for Travner now playing with Mura 05 in his homeland after knocking back an extension to his St Mirren deal a year ago his efforts will be helped by the fact both men share the same agent.
Last night, one source told Express Sports: No official approach has been made but Travner is a name that has been spoken about by Danny and some of his backroom staff.
However, there are a few names on that list and Danny has yet to decide if Jure is the man he wants as a replacement for Tesselaar.
One man who will not be making a St Mirren comeback is Franco Miranda despite rumours that the Argentine ace is on Lennons transfer radar.
Our source added: Danny has no idea where Miranda has been playing recently or what shape he would be in.
Travner enjoyed a successful year-long spell with Saints after penning an initial loan deal from Watford in July 2010.
His contact with the Hornets was ripped up a few months later and Travner extended his stay with Saints by signing a short-term agreement that kept him in Paisley until the end of the 2010/11 season.
Travner turned out 42 times in total for St Mirren and a series of impressive showings at left-back convinced Lennon to offer the defender a further contract only to be left surprised when the player knocked back the deal and switched to Bulgarian outfit Ludogorets Razgrad.
However, he missed out on the newly-formed clubs surprise domestic league and cup double when he quit to move back to Slovenia to sign with Mura 05, having played just three times in Bulgaria.
Travner made 17 appearances for Mura as they finished third in their league 21 points behind champions Maribor.
However, his six-month deal is now up and a return to Paisley could be on the cards.
