Aberdeen have secured one of their brightest talents on a new two-year deal.
Scotland Under-19 international Frank Ross put pen to paper at the club’s pre-season training camp in St Andrews.
Ross, 18, made his first team debut in May 2015 and is highly rated by the coaches at Pittodrie.
He said: “I am very pleased to have got the contract finalised and signed. It is good to get everything sorted ahead of the new season and now I can just get my head down and focus on my football.
“Last year was really my first season playing at U20 level. The season before that I only started a handful of games and played predominantly for the U17s. So considering it was my first time at that level I thought I did okay. I really enjoyed it.
“I am still young and still have two years left at U20 level but this is my third season as a full time professional and I now want to be pushing towards the first team squad.
“To be recognised by the manager and to have made my first team debut so early was very pleasing. I know most players my age have to wait a lot longer for their chance. So it is good to be involved with the first team squad and hopefully I will get more involved this season.”
Derek McInnes praised the youngster and has high hopes for his future.
He said: “I am delighted to get Frank tied up.
“He is a very talented player and one we think very highly of and definitely has the potential to go all the way if he continues to progress the way he has been doing.”
