Defender Brian Easton has become the latest St Johnstone player to commit his future to the Perth club.
The former Dundee and Hamilton man, who was linked with Aberdeen, has signed a deal through to the summer of 2019 and joins David Wotherspoon, Richard Foster, Joe Shaughnessy and Steven MacLean in agreeing fresh terms.
And manager Tommy Wright expects more good news in the coming weeks.
He said: “I’m delighted that Brian is the latest player to commit himself to an extended stay at the club. He’s been superb for me and for the club over the past few seasons and I know he’s happy here.
“On top of the other recent contract extension announcements, it’s positive news as we look to the future and the process will continue in the coming weeks.”
Easton said: “There have been talks for the last month or two and it’s great to get signed up because it gives you that security that you’ll be part of the club for the next couple of seasons at least. It’s a great club to be at and I’ve enjoyed my time here so much.”
