Kristjaan Speakman has revealed that SAFC have triggered Alex Pritchard’s and Danny Batth’s automatic extension clauses, which means that both player’s contracts no longer end in June 2023, but now expire 12 months later. Speakman also spoke about Ross Stewart’s contract…
"With both of those players, there are automatic extension clauses which carry over for them for next season. So, they are technically re-registered for next season."
"Our ambition has always been to re-sign Ross and that remains the case. We've obviously got to be sensitive around the situation at the present time but I'm sure there will be a conversation in the near future about where we're at with that. It was only natural that we put that on hold coming into the January window, because I don't think those conversations are ever that productive during a transfer window. We're all absolutely gutted for Ross, a player who has not had the opportunity to play at this level before and has done so well. "And for a player who has been so robust for us to suffer two major injuries - it's gutting for him as an individual and for the club."
