Dutch left-back Kenny van der Weg has signed a new deal with Ross County.

The 26-year-old looked set to quit the club following his first season but has performed a U-turn and penned a one-year contract.

Manager Jim McIntyre told the club’s official website: “Kenny got in touch to say he had a change of heart and wanted to stay at the club.

“Our position hadn’t changed, he’s a player that we wanted to stay and we are delighted to welcome him back.”

Van der Weg joined County from NAC Breda last summer but looked set to depart after he was quoted in March as saying he was struggling with the Scottish accent and slow pace of life in Dingwall, however he claimed his words were mistranslated from a Dutch magazine.

The Dutchman played 38 times for the Staggies in all competitions last season.
