Caley Thistle midfielder Iain Vigurs has become the latest player to commit his future to managerless Inverness after signing a new two-year deal yesterday.
Vigurs has been in talks to extend his second spell with the Highlanders, having returned last summer after stints with Ross County and Motherwell.
After suffering a serious back injury that reduced him to just 15 appearances in his final season with the Steelmen, Vigurs has enjoyed a successful return to Inverness, scoring eight goals in 36 appearances this term.
Despite Caley Jags dropping out of the Premiership top six for the first time in four years, finishing seventh, Vigurs has been pleased with his own campaign, and after becoming the 14th player to sign up for next season he is aiming to hit the ground running next term.
The 28-year-old, who is now signed up with Invernes until 2018, said: “I’m glad to have got my contract done and dusted. I thoroughly enjoyed getting back to playing last season and, although we never got the top-six finish we wanted, we finished strong. We now need to look to kick on from that next season.
“The squad is taking shape and when key players are all signing on, it’s always good to see that.”
Inverness remain on the hunt for a new manager after the departure of John Hughes last weekend, with current club captain Richie Foran hotly tipped to take over.
Chairman Kenny Cameron has overseen contract negotiations in the meantime and he is pleased with the squad his new manager will inherit.
Cameron said: “Iain is another of the players we had offers out to before the end of the season and it is great to see so many key players committing to the club for the longer term.
“It’s vital we get as many of the core squad re-signed as possible, so that when the new manager comes in he has a good platform to build on.”
