Young Dundee United midfielder Jamie Robson has signed a contract extension to keep him with the club until 2018.
Robson has been at Tannadice since the age of 12 when he made the short journey from city rivals Dundee, and he signed his first professional deal in the summer of 2014.
The 18-year-old is rated as one of the club's biggest talents and made his senior debut in the 3-1 League Cup third-round win over Dunfermline earlier this season.
He is the third young United player to commit his future to the club, with development squad team-mates Harry Souttar and Brad Smith having recently signed new deals.
United boss Mixu Paatelainen said: "Jamie is a young talented player who can continue his development here.
"He has first team experience and will get more in the future. He is quick, honest and has a great attitude. I look forward to continuing to work with him for the benefit of both him and the club."
Robson said: "I had initial talks with the previous management team and I am delighted the new head coach has come in and liked the look of me.
"I'm so happy to have signed and I can now focus on developing here and doing my best to ensure that I play my part in helping the club achieve all of its goals."
