Motherwell midfielder Jack Leitch had become the latest player to commit his future to the club after signing a new two-year deal.

The 18-year-old became a staple of the first team last season making ten appearances, including six starts.

Leitch said: “I’m delighted to have my future sorted out, especially being a Motherwell fan.

“I’ve grown up supporting Motherwell and it’s always been my dream to play for the club.

“The manager threw me in and, at my age, I can’t complain at having ten appearances and six starts.

“I want to build on that and continue playing well, hopefully achieving the success we had last year.

“There’s a lot of competition for midfield places but that’s healthy and still being young, I can learn a lot off the likes of Keith Lasley and Paul Lawson and hopefully continue to develop myself as a player.”

Academy graduates Morgyn Neill, Dom Thomas and Steven Higgins have also penned new deals.
