Scotland Under-21 striker Jamie Murphy has agreed a two-year extension to his contract, his deal at Fir Park now lasting until the summer of 2013.

Murphy, 20, broke into the Motherwell first team in 2001 from the youth setup and netted 10 goals from 28 starts.

He said: "I am delighted to extend my stay here; Motherwell has become a really big part of my life.

"These next three years are going to be the most important in my footballing career as I learn my trade."

Glasgow-born Murphy has featured 97 times for the Steelmen, playing a total of 44 times last season, so is likely to be a regular start in Craig Brown's side next season.

My aim now is to hold down a regular first-team spot

"I've been at the club for nearly 10 years, so agreeing to another three wasn't hard," said Murphy. "Particularly because Craig Brown and Archie Knox are going to be here too.

"They are excellent coaches who you really want to work with.

"My aim now is to hold down a regular first-team spot and score as many goals as I can for the team."
