Stuart Armstrong: Dundee United midfielder (r) has signed a contract extension

The 21-year-old, who has made more than 100 first-team appearances for United, has scored six goals this season.

Armstrong is the latest player in Jackie McNamara's exciting young squad to agree a new deal, with Ryan Gauld, John Souttar and Nadir Ciftci also putting pen to paper.

And McNamara is delighted the players are showing some loyalty to the club rather than making swift departures.

McNamara said: "I think they just let them get on with their football and develop and do things properly.

"This is the best place for them, as we've said a number of times, to develop. And they're getting game time. They're still young but they're getting better and better.

"Stuart's got everything in his game to go to the very top and I'm happy he wants to stay here and get the games under his belt.

"It was his 100th game I think at the weekend. But he plays with a maturity there, the runs he makes, and he's scored some vitals goals so far for us this season.

"And he's one that he'll only get better as well."

Armstrong insists he had no hesitation in agreeing a new deal with the Scottish Premiership side.

"I think it's very important to have a few seasons under your belt before pursuing other options," Armstrong said.

"I want to keep playing for Dundee United and add more games to the games I've already played and play well more importantly."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
