Matt Scott says he has signed a new deal with Edinburgh Rugby in order to chase trophies.
The 22-year-old centre, who made his Scotland debut earlier this year, has penned a deal keeping him in red and black until 2015.
The former Currie RFC man is encouraged by the young talent around Murrayfield, and he hopes the side can envolve into a league and cup winning side together.
Scott said: “I’m delighted to have signed on until 2015. We’re an ambitious club and there’s a lot of young players who have signed on as well.
“We have a captain and a coach who want to win trophies and as a rugby player that’s what you want to aspire to so that was one of the main reasons behind me signing.”
With Scott’s new deal running until the next rugby world cup, held in England in 2015, international caps are at the forefront of the back’s mind.
With four Scotland appearances under his belt already, Scott knows that strong club form can propel him into a regular slot in dark blue.
He said; “The new deal keeps me in the eye of the Scotland selectors at Edinburgh. I’m playing a high level of rugby both in the RaboDirect and the Heineken Cup so there’s no reason for me to be anywhere else but Edinburgh at the moment.
“I would love to continue playing for Scotland. I’ve had a small taste of international rugby.
“I’m yet to play for Scotland at Murrayfield which is obviously one of my life-long dreams, so in the short-term that’s what I’m focusing on.”
