St Mirren midfielder Jamie McGrath admits he’s “see what happens” next month as he enters the final six months of his contract with the Buddies – and insists he can’t afford to take his eye off the ball if he wants to continue progressing.

McGrath has been linked moves to Hibs, Aberdeen, Hearts and Dundee United and a number of Championship sides south of the border while St Mirren have made an offer to extend the Irish international’s contract in Paisley beyond the summer that would make him the club’s highest-paid player in history.

St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin is desperate to keep McGrath at St Mirren but it looks as though he could be sold next month if he decides he doesn’t want to stay with the Buddies long-term.

McGrath however is “just grateful” to be where he is just now and have clubs chasing his signature after an impressive spell with the Saints helped him force his way into the senior Ireland side.

“I want to play at the highest level I can, wherever that is, and fingers crossed I can get there,” McGrath said [Irish Independent].

“There are a few bits and pieces around, there was a lot of interest in the summer and between one thing and another it didn’t work out.

“I am happy where I am, I have six months left on my contract so we’ll see what happens in January, the club have put a nice offer before me.

“I am just grateful to be in the position I am in, and I can’t take my eye off the ball.”
