SAINTS confirm that Kayne Ramsay has switched his season-long loan at League One Crewe Alexandra to Scottish Premier League side Ross County.

The 21-year-old right-back made 19 competitive appearances including 15 in the league so far this campaign, but will now play out the remainder of the year alongside Jake Vokins north of the border.

Ramsay would have made more games for Crewe, but for an injury that ruled him out for several weeks in November.

Crewe manager David Artell admitted that he only learned of Saints’ decision to recall the youngster the night before a game, and had to rejig his squad without him.

Ramsay could make his debut for the Scottish top-flight outfit when they host Motherwell on Tuesday, January 18.

London-born Ramsay has already made his senior debut for Saints including two appearances in the Premier League – the last being the 9-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

The youngster regularly featured on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s bench for Premier League matches last campaign, while the club battled with an injury crisis.

Ramsay made his way through the youth ranks at Saints after a stellar spell in the under-18s, before becoming a B team regular.
