Morton striker Jai Quitongo has signed a contract extension, keeping him at Cappielow until June 2018.

The 19-year-old, working his way back from knee surgery in January, has scored six goals this season.

His form was rewarded with a Scotland Under-21 cap against Slovakia in November, while an offer from Doncaster was rejected in late August.

"He's a potentially outstanding talent," manager Jim Duffy told the Greenock club's website.

"There was obviously a lot of speculation surrounding the boy just before he got injured.

"He's only really had about 20 first-team starts, so he maybe thinks it's in his interests as well to get a bit more experience, and if he keeps developing and working hard he may get that move further down the line."
