St Mirren rebuff approach for Stephen McGinn

St Mirren midfielder John McGinn

St Mirren have turned down an offer for midfielder John McGinn.

Press Association Sport say the bid for the 19-year-old came from Sheffield United, where older brother Stephen has been since last summer.

A statement on the Buddies website confirms an approach and describes the fee offered as "well below our valuation of the player".

McGinn, a Scotland U21 international, scored three goals in 39 appearances for the Paisley club this season.

Stephen, 25, left St Mirren for Watford in 2010 for an undisclosed fee.
