Dundee defender James McPake

Defender James McPake has agreed a two-year contract extension with Dundee.

The 30-year-old had been linked with a move to English football but has signed until the end of the 2016/17 season.

McPake joined Dundee in the summer after leaving Hibernian following the Edinburgh side's relegation.

Manager Paul Hartley said: "I'm delighted that James has agreed to extend his contract. He's a huge asset for the side and he's shown this season how good he is."

The deal for McPake, who has made 24 appearances for the Scottish Premiership club, follows an extension agreed by striker Greg Stewart.

"Having players like Jazza and Greg sign up is a signal of what we are doing at the club," Hartley told his club website. external-link

"We are building a side that can be competitive in the top flight for many years to come."
