NICKY Cadden says he won’t entertain any talk of a new deal as he remains fully focused on Morton having a strong finish to the season.

The Tele understands a new deal could be on the table for the in-form winger after scoring eight goals and providing ten assists so far this season.

But Cadden has refused to be drawn on his future and is concentrating on continuing Ton’s unbeaten run in the league, starting with Saturday’s clash against Alloa.

He told the Tele: “I’ve not really set myself any targets for the rest of the season if I’m being honest.

“I just want to play as much as I can and chip in with as many goals and assists as possible.

“I don’t really know the exact numbers. I just want to contribute as much as I can for the rest of the season, the team is the main priority.

“I want to finish the season as strongly as possible, help the side get as many points as possible and see where that gets us.

“That’s my main priority just now. I haven’t really thought about next season.”

Cadden believes that the confidence and togetherness of the dressing room has helped turn Morton’s form around in 2020 and he hopes that it can carry on for the rest of the campaign.

He added: “We’ve got a good set of boys in the dressing room and they’re all good players, but obviously we were a new team and it takes time to settle and gel.

“I think that we’re gelling now and obviously it’s showing with results against the likes of Dundee United and Dundee back to back.

“We probably could’ve and should have got the win against Queen of the South last week, so to stay unbeaten in 2020 in the league is brilliant for us, not just results-wise but for our confidence. 

“Hopefully we can keep that going for as long as possible and into Saturday.

“We know that Alloa are going to be a different side from last time around.

“Kevin O’Hara is going to be playing and he has been in really good form.

“We know all about the quality he brings to their team and what he can do against us.

“But we just need to think about ourselves as we’ve got enough in the dressing room. 

“Hopefully we can turn up, play the way that we know that we can, and we can beat them.

“Then that can put a bit of breathing space between them and ourselves at the bottom of the table and we can start looking up.

“They’ll want to come here and win, because they haven’t taken anything from us this year.

"They’ll have a big incentive for that, but as long as we play our game and stay focused we can beat them and hopefully score a few goals along the way."
