Ross MacIver has extended his deal with Motherwell FC until the summer of 2021.
The youngster has been rewarded for breaking into the first team picture at Fir Park, after being recruited from Ross County in the summer.
MacIver announced his arrival onto the scene with a spectacular debut goal on Boxing Day against his former club.
He has since made two further substitute appearances for the club against Hamilton Academical and Aberdeen, before making his first start against Hibernian at the weekend.
“We are delighted to get Ross signed again,” manager Stephen Robinson said. “He is another one of our young players we feel we can keep developing.
“He has already experienced first team football and done well. We are hoping he will keep progressing and developing.”
MacIver added: “It’s been a whirlwind last few weeks, scoring on my debut at Ross County and getting chances in the first team.
“I’ll keep working hard to develop further, and this is the perfect place to do it.”
