St Mirren defender Marcus Fraser says he is contract discussions with the Paisley side as his deal comes to a close.

The 26-year-old has been a key player for manager Jim Goodwin this season since his move to Paisley from Ross County last summer. He only signed a one-year deal though but there are talks to extend his St Mirren stay.

Fraser said: “I’m in talks with the club right now but that’s really just where it is. Other than that I’m just really hoping to play as many games as I can until the end of the season. Thankfully the manager has selected me to play in quite a lot of the games this season. If I can keep playing well and stay in the team that’s all that I can do.

“Listen, I’ve loved my time here and it’s been brilliant. Thankfully I’ve played lots of games. That’s where my frame of mind is at. I just want to play well from now until the end of the season. Hopefully we can get a few wins and a decent cup run along the way.

“If we can do that it will be a positive for me. Whatever then happens with me and the club, I’m sure it will be taken care of soon.”

Meanwhile, Goodwin has provided an update on striker Eamonn Brophy, who was initially ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken bone in his foot: “Eamonn is chomping at the bit to get back, the problem is you need to wait for the bone to set properly.

“If we rush him back too early, we run the risk of something happening that prolongs the whole rehabilitation period. He’s not a tentative type. As soon as he’s ready we’ll know and I’d like to think that by the end of next week he’ll be back in with the group doing some passing and possession stuff. He might even make the squad for the Hamilton game (May 1st).
