Ross County manager Stuart Kettlewell is hopeful that Ross Stewart will sign an extension to his current contract.

Last season’s triple player of the year award winner Stewart is into the final 12 months of his deal, and has been linked with other Scottish Premiership clubs as well as a move south of the border.

Stewart finished the campaign as joint top scorer on 11 goals, and Kettlewell said he would love for the 23-year-old to commit to County longer term.

“We would love to tie Ross down here for another couple of years, of course we would,” Kettlewell said.

“We are pretty proactive in this situation and are well versed on how it all works.

“I have spoken to him about his situation and the fact he is linked with clubs in a weekly basis. You ask him and he will tell you he loves playing football here, he loves the environment, the dressing room and the challenges of playing for Ross County.

“He has no intention of looking elsewhere.”
