Glen Kamara has revealed he has opened talks with Rangers over extending his current contract.
His deal expires in 2023 but the midfielder has been in fine form this season and Gers are apparently keen to tie him down long-term.
Kamara has proved a bargain since signing for £50,000 and has barely missed a minute in recent weeks.
The 25-year-old suggests talks have been held but remains patient about putting pen to paper.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun he said, “There have been some talks. The season’s been good, obviously we’ve just become champions.
“It’s been a success so far. I still have two years left on my contract. There’s still time over the summer to see what will happen.”
It is positive to see the club being pro-active when it comes to Kamara.
Having signed on the cheap it is likely that he is not earning very much and that means a new contract should reward his fine form.
It is important to keep our players happy, particularly when they are as instrumental as Kamara.
The midfielder has likely attracted attention with his performances in recent months and having lived in England previously he could be persuaded to move back south.
Tying down his best years reduces that risk, and at the very least guarantees us a good fee if he does want to leave.
Now the club must do the same with other squad members.
Allan McGregor is obviously the priority but James Tavernier and Connor Goldson only have a little more than a year left on their current deals.
They are key men we cannot afford to lose so once Kamara’s contract is settled that pair must be the focus.
