Lennon Miller has signed a new contract at Motherwell, tying him to the club until the summer of 2026.
The 17-year-old midfielder has made 19 appearances for Well, scoring twice, and is recovering from a broken patella.
Manager Stuart Kettlewell believes the new deal "tees Lennon up for that next chapter of his career".
“He’s already ticked off a few important milestones in his young career but for him to know his future is here, gives him good security going forward," added Kettlewell.
“It’s a proper feel good factor for the football club as a whole and I look forward to seeing Lennon back on the pitch.”
Miller was ruled out for a minimum of three months when he picked up his injury against Aberdeen earlier this month.
And he said: “My injury was a disappointment but to get my contract extended has given me a lift.
“I always wanted to stay at Motherwell and negotiations have been straightforward from my side of things.
“This club has given so many opportunities and to be rewarded with this is something I’m grateful for."
