Queen of the South have signed striker Dennis Wyness on loan as midfielder Steve Tosh had surgery to repair ligament damage to his broken leg.

The 36-year-old Tosh suffered the injury in the 2-1 Co-operative Insurance Cup defeat by Rangers after landing awkwardly as he made a tackle.

Queens boss Gordon Chisholm had said it was not yet clear how long the player will be out of action.

Chisholm has signed Wyness from St Mirren on a three-month deal.

Wyness, who joined the Buddies from Inverness Caley Thistle last summer, has not played for the Scottish Premier League club this season and nearly half of his appearances last season came from the bench.

Queens boss Gordon Chisholm told BBC Scotland on Thursday: "I'm absolutely devastated for Stevie.

The former Aberdeen midfielder was stretchered off after 64 minutes of the cup tie at Palmerston Park after his leg twisted underneath him as he attempted to tackle an opponent.

Tosh has been a key player in the Queen of the South team since joining the First Division club from Gretna in January 2007.
