ST MIRREN skipper Jim Goodwin today urged out-of-contract stars Nigel Hasselbaink and Jeroen Tesselaar to sign on the dotted line.
The Dutch duo's representative Humphrey Nijman has been in negotiation with the Paisley management for over a week on new deals tabled by boss Danny Lennon.
However, business has not been concluded and now Goody has told the Paisley pair that St Mirren remains the best place for them to continue their development next term after the duo had both become key players for the Buddies in their first SPL campaign in black and white.
Goody said: "I would like to see both lads sign their new deals.
"They have both come on a ton over the course of the season and although much of that has been down to their own effort and hard work, it has also been down, in no small part, to the quality of the training they have had under Danny Lennon and Tommy Craig.
"You look at Nigel and he is 21 and Jeroen is just 23 and they have featured in about 80 games between them this season and they need to ask themselves whether another season of development and consolidation with St Mirren in the SPL is not the best thing for them next time around.
"I may be bias but I would have to say that from where I am sitting it is the best option for both lads.
"Fingers crossed they will come to that conclusion because although they both had fine seasons this term they can lift that another level next time around."
Turning his attention to tomorrow's SPL finale at Aberdeen Goodwin was in no mood to play down the importance of going out on a high at Pittodrie.
Saints can still claim a best-ever seventh place SPL finish if they beat the Dons and Kilmarnock come a cropper at relegated Dunfermline.
Ande as long as the Buddies avoid returning from the North East empty- handed they will ensure eighth spot which would also be their best finish since season 1988/89. The Saints skipper said: "We are determined to go out on a high and take three points from the Aberdeen game.
"The last time we were up in the North East we found ourselves two down inside the first 20 minutes so we must learn from that one and make sure we come out the traps as best we can.
"On top of that, as always, we know that we will take a decent support up the road.
"So it is important that we reward them for that loyalty with a win and send them away for their summer with a smile on their faces.
"We have posted a lot of good wins on the road this season at difficult places like Easter Road and McDiarmid Park and it would be great to add Pittodrie to that list."
Meanwhile, Saints outstanding young midfield talent Kenny McLean has been called-up to the Scotland Under-21 squad.
Head coach Billy Stark has named the St Mirren star in his 22-man squad for the Uefa European Under-21 Championships qualifier away to Bulgaria later this month after McLean enjoyed a 30-minute run-out as a second-half sub during the Scotland Under-21s' international challenge match defeat against Italy last month.
