Caley Thistle captain Richie Foran believes the days of players using the club as a stepping stone are over.
Inverness manager John Hughes has retained the services of all his key players for next season and midfielder Foran, 33, who signed a new three-year deal last season, is delighted.
The Dubliner is pleased the team which finished in the top six and reached the final of the League Cup last season has remained in tact for the new campaign which begins on August 9.
Foran is convinced the days of Inverness struggling to attract or hold on to players is at an end.
He said: “It’s fantastic that we’ll go into next season with the same group of players as we’ve had for a couple of season’s now. It’s going so well.
“When I first joined the club we had players coming here on loan or on short-term deals and not staying too long. Now we’ve got players knocking on the chairman’s door looking to sign contract extensions. That just shows you how much this club has taken off over the last few years.
“The style of football we play, the results we’ve been getting, plus the fact we’re on TV quite a bit, is attracting players to come here. There are players now asking to come to the club and that was not happening two or three years ago.”
Foran is eager to make up for lost time at Inverness after missing the last two months of the season due to a knee operation.
Fit-again Foran is keen to play his part in the new campaign. He said: “We’ve now got six weeks when we come back for pre-season to really work on things but I’m confident that next season we will be a great team to watch.”
