Ross County boss Derek Adams has acted swiftly to ensure he does not lose any more of his first-team squad by handing nine players new deals.
Michael Fraser, Mihael Kovacevic, Grant Munro, Branislav Micic, Stuart Kettlewell, Rocco Quinn, Alex Cooper, Gary Glen and Steven Ross have all signed contract extensions.
The Staggies have already lost Paul Lawson to Motherwell, while skipper Richie Brittain has penned a pre-contract agreement with St Johnstone, although the midfielder now says he wants to remain with the Dingwall outfit.
Adams told the club's official website: "I am delighted we have been able to sign a good number of our current squad after our successful debut season.
"The season finished in the perfect way with our derby win enabling us to finish fifth in the SPL."
