Tranmere Rovers striker Iain Hume has signed a new contract with the club.Tranmere Rovers striker Iain Hume has signed a new contract with the League One club.
The highly-rated Canadian international has committed his future to the Wirral-based outfit until June 2007 and the news will be looked on as a major boost for the Prenton Park faithful.
The 21-year-old's exploits for club and country prompted Championship side Preston North End to make several unsuccessful bids for the speedy hit-man last month.
Despite the interest, Hume has opted to extend his contract with Brian Little's side and help Tranmere's bid for Championship promotion this season.
"When the Preston bid came in, I told the club I wanted to stay and it was in my best interests to sign a longer deal," Hume told the club's official website.
"I've stated from day one that Tranmere is my priority and the place I want to be, so I'm just hoping I can repay the club's faith and do the business on the pitch.
"The gaffer (Little) has been brilliant since he came in and I'm hoping we can bring the club up into The Championship, where we belong.
"I've also been a regular in the Canada squad since the gaffer (Frank Yallop) came in and I'm hoping for a long time to come that I'll be there."
