St Mirren star Jamie McGrath has opened up on the offer of a new contract from the Buddies as he admits it is “very flattering” that Saints want to keep him in Paisley.

McGrath has been a revelation for Jim Goodwin’s side since his move from the League Of Ireland, winning international recognition this season with his first caps for his country, and earning some interest from rival Premiership sides.

The Irishman confessed he’s not had much time to weigh up the offer as he plans to sit down with his agent – insisting he “can’t speak highly enough” of the Buddies.

“The offer has only come around since I got back from Ireland duty, so I haven’t had an awful lot of time to process it,” the St Mirren star told Renfrewshire Live Sport.

“I’ll have a chat with my agent and see what the craic is. I’m going to see what happens. It’s obviously a good deal and the gaffer has briefly spoken to me about it.

 

“I’m sure we’ll speak about it more in the next few days. It’s obviously very flattering. My time here has been absolutely unbelievable and I’ve enjoyed every minute of being here.

“Whatever happens will happen, but I can’t speak highly enough of being here with the gaffer and the lads. It’s a great place to be.”
