AIDAN Fulton has decided to snub interest from the likes of Partick Thistle in order to stay with Morton next season, the Tele can reveal.
Wideman Fulton told how Jags boss Alan Archibald had contacted him to discuss his future and the possibility of linking up with the Firhill side next term.
But after attending the recent presentation made by manager Allan Moore and club development consultant Warren Hawke, the 19-year-old has agreed to sign a full-time deal with the Ton.
Moore told the Tele: "I spoke to Aidan the other day.
"He's come back to me and he's going to be involved with us next season.
"He hasn't signed anything yet but we're hoping to get Aidan and the other younger boys signed up for next year in the next week or so.
"He's one that we're hoping will step up to the mark.
"He's had a full season with the reserves, and with the right attitude and commitment he can push for a start next season.
"When he gets his fitness levels up a bit I see him as more than cover for David O'Brien on the left-hand side - I see him as competition for him."
