Brazilian defender Lucas has won a new contract with Hamilton Academical and has signed a deal at New Douglas Park until the end of next season.

The 24-year-old joined Accies in January after leaving Moldovan club Milsami Orhei and broke into the first team at the end of the campaign.

He told the Accies websiteexternal-link that he is happy to remain at the club.

"I have enjoyed it here and learnt a lot since arriving - and adapting to the Scottish weather too," he said.

Lucas, full name Lucas Tagliapietra, has an Italian passport and has made two starts and four substitute appearances for Hamilton.
