The 19-year-old extended his deal until summer 2015 but most of the Motherwell first team are out of contract at the end of this season.

The midfielder, who has made 41 appearances for the club, told MFCTV: "I am very happy to sign and I hope some of my team-mates do so too."

He added: "I've played quite a fair bit this season, it's something like seven starts and 14 from the bench. My aim is to keep working hard and hopefully become a regular for the first-team."

One of those players who are out of contract, Nicky Law, has assured Motherwell fans he is fully committed to the club after being linked with a move to Rangers.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has admitted interest in the player but Law felt too much was made of the issue in the media.

The 24-year-old said: "I said that I've had no contact from anyone and that is still the case now.

"I also told the reporter that I will be speaking to Motherwell and will probably take their offer more serious than anyone. I've had two great years here, I've thoroughly enjoyed it and we've had some great success.

"The last thing I want is for the fans, who have been so good to me, to think I am not committed.

"We have got seven huge games left and that's my only focus at the moment, giving 110% and hope the supporters see that."
