Danny Lennon is hoping more of the club’s top players will follow in the bootsteps of Steven Thompson by signing new contracts at the Paisley club.
Thompson handed the Buddies a massive boost yesterday by agreeing an extended contract, while defender David van Zanten has also been given a new deal for next season.
However, as things stand, a host of other star players – including the likes of midfield maestro Paul McGowan – are free to join new clubs this summer.
And Lennon is keen to make sure Saints hold on to their prize assets.
He told Express Sports: “We’re looking at renewing some contracts with other players at this very moment in time.”
Lennon also expressed his delight that Thompson is staying on at St Mirren.
He added: “Steven has been our top scorer for two years, has led the line incredibly well and is a character who motivates the players around him.
“I am delighted Steven has decided to finish his playing career at the club that inspired him to play this beautiful game.”
