    Erhahon is set to leave the Scottish Premier League side when the transfer window opens next week.

    The 21-year-old has impressed for St Mirren this season, making 16 appearances in the top-flight and already has the over 100 club games to his name.

    His contract expires at the end of the campaign and a move south of the border is expected.

    Erhahon was hailed by St Mirren boss Stephen Robinson last month, who said his rising star could shine for Glasgow giants Celtic or Rangers.

    And the midfielder says his impressive form is thanks to his dog Coco.

    Erhahon believes Coco is helping him be more responsible — on and off the park.

    Erhahon said: “Coco is my Staffy pup. She’s a lot of fun and very loving, but she keeps me on my toes.

    “I was actually speaking to someone at the club and he said he thinks the puppy is the reason I’ve been performing well this season.

    “I see where he’s coming from because I have that extra responsibility off the park and now I try to do the same on the park.

    “The Cowdenbeath game was my 100th for the club. Looking back, I probably should have reached that last season, if not the one before.

    “I am kicking myself. I stagnated a wee bit for some reason. It’s all about trying to come back from that and reach the standards I know that I can.

    “I want to kick on this season and show people the real me. I’m grateful to every manager who has played me, but I believe I have more gears to go to and I can get better.”

    St Mirren travel to Livingston on Wednesday.
