St Johnstone boss eager for May to spend one more year in Scotland

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright is confident that Stevie May will stick around for at least another season.

The 21-year old striker had a brilliant season with the Saints, scoring 27 goals in all competitions, which has prompted interest from clubs in England.

However, Wright believes the former Hamilton loanee will be better served to remain at McDiarmid Park so he can avoid a potential bubble burst like some talented Scots have experienced across the border in recent years.

"It is all positive," Wright said regarding contract talks with May. "We know we'll have to give Stevie better terms, but we know he wants to stay. That makes it easier.

"There are a few who have gone to England like Fraser Fyvie from Aberdeen to Wigan and Scott Allan from Dundee United to West Brom who were good players.

"And they're probably still good players. They've lost their way in a bigger environment. That's why it would be good for Stevie to stay at least another season."
