The Perth club are expected to announce the arrival of the 27-year-old, most recently Maccabi Netanya, in the next 24 hours

Melamed visited Scotland and Saints patron Davidson said: « Guy Melamed is here and I hope we can finish the paperwork on time

« I hope he brings goals. I looked for someone a little different, someone who can spark the team

« We hope he can come in, form a good partnership with the other players and score goals for us »

The Saints failed to find the back of the net for the fourth game in a row after losing 2-0 to Celtic at McDiarmid Park on Sunday

“It was painful to take because we played at a very high level and I felt comfortable,” Davidson said

« Celtic had to bring five quality submarines to win the game, they had to call on some of their star players

« I’m disappointed with the goal because we had a free kick and it’s three goals in the last two games that we’ve lost because of it

« But otherwise, I was very satisfied with the level of performance, enthusiasm and calm of the team

« Obviously the one with Craig Conway is the one we got away from, that sums up what has been going on all season

« We cannot lower our heads, we have to keep repeating the good performances and trying to change them

The Saints will now be without Danny McNamara and Ali McCann for the next Betfred Cup matches, starting with Kelty Hearts on Wednesday night

McNamara is out with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s while McCann has been called up to the Northern Ireland senior squad

Davidson said: “Danny was excellent [Sunday] again and I was delighted he got his call for the Irish U21s

« But today you can’t just pick them because a lot of players were doing well I’m gutted for them because they deserved something »
