Dundee United have announced that influential midfielder Stuart Armstrong has extended his contract to stay at the Tannadice club until July 2016.
United manager Jackie McNamara was delighted with Armstrong’s new deal, he said: “I am delighted with this as Stuart has really flourished this season and his performances have been sensational on many occasions. You can see he is adding consistency to his game and he has already scored more goals this season than in any previous season for the Club. There are not many players who can play the game the way he plays it and he excites the fans.
“He is an exceptional talent who will grace a larger stage at one point but his decision to commit to a longer contract at Dundee United shows that he knows this is the best place to continue his development. There is a real positive vibe around the Club and this will show the United fans that the players are committed to taking this Club where it wants to be.”
Speaking to the official club website, Armstrong added: “I am enjoying my football, scoring goals and improving as a player so signing the extension was the obvious choice. It is such a joy being involved in our games and all the players have a similar vision to the Manager as to where we can go as a unit so I look forward to the next few years being very exciting for United and our fans.”
