Ross County winger Josh Mullin has signed a 12-month contract extension to keep him at Victoria Park until 2021.

Mullin played a key role in helping the Staggies win the Championship title after joining from Livingston last summer, clocking up 14 goals and 21 assists in his first season with the club and winning the local press player of the year award.

The 26-year-old’s form had seen him linked with a move away from Dingwall, with Polish outfit Legia Warsaw and a number of Premiership sides reportedly keeping tabs on him earlier this summer.

Mullin has now committed his future to the Dingwall club for the next two seasons however, meaning he will make the step up to the top-flight with the Staggies after opting to leave Livi following their promotion last year.

County co-manager Steven Ferguson said: “Josh is a great asset to the club and had a very successful season in the Championship. We are pleased he will be with us for the next two seasons, and Josh is quite rightly looking to test himself in the Scottish Premiership.”
