Lee Ashcroft has signed a new contract with Dundee.
Ashcroft, 28, has penned a deal that will see him remain at Dens Park until the summer of 2023.
The towering centre-half joined the Dark Blues from Dunfermline in the summer of 2020 and has gone on to make 51 appearances for the club.
As well as cutting a stoic presence at the back, Ashcroft has scored nine goals.

One of those strikes came in the promotion playoff final second leg win over Kilmarnock last May which saw Dundee earn their return to the Premiership.
Ashcroft, who came through the ranks at Killie, has been a regular for the Dee in the top-flight this term, playing 19 times and rippling the net against Motherwell and Celtic.
However, he has been absent since suffering a hamstring injury against Steelmen in November.
The damage required surgery at the start of December, with a 12-week recovery timeframe subsequently laid out.
