St Mirren keeper Jak Alnwick has insisted he is happy at the Buddies as he admitted talks over a new contract for the former Rangers man have been put on the shelf until January as he enters the final six months of his deal.

Alnwick has been a big player for Jim Goodwin’s side since moving to Paisley from Ibrox a couple of years ago and the Englishman insists he just wants to focus on maintaining his performances at a hectic point in the season.

While St Mirren have made it clear they want Alnwick to remain in Paisley beyond the end of the season, the Buddies number one is willing to wait and see how things sit during the winter break.

“The club made it clear that they want me to stay and we’ve spoken a little bit about it,” Alnwick said [Renfrewshire Live]


“We decided we’d review it again in January because, for me and the club, we don’t want to do things too early.

“I just want to focus on playing football and keeping my form high. I think sometimes when there’s too much going on off the pitch with things like contracts it can disturb people.

“We want to get over the Christmas period and then sit down when we’ve got the time over the winter break.

“The club have been brilliant. They understand my situation and I understand theirs. It’s fine moving forward.

“I’m definitely happy here and we’ll see how things go around the winter break.”
