Coleraine boss Oran Kearney says there will be no contract talks with any players until this current campaign ends.

Speculation is intensifying that striker Eoin Bradley will sign for Glenavon once his deal with the Bannsiders expeires. Kearney though told Times Sport after Saturday’s game with Ballymena United that he wants to keep Bradley at The Showgrounds, but added that any talks will take place once the football business is out of the way.

“There is no sitiuation with Eoin at this moment in time,” said Kearney.

“There’s quite a few players here at the minute who will be out of contract at the end of the season and their future’s are maybe up in the air at this time.

“But until such time that the football part of this season is finished we will not be dealing with any contract negotiations.

“We have a big job to do on the pitch over the next three games and until that job is completed we won’t be focusing on any other business.

“That stuff can all be sorted out during the off-season.

“Eoin has done well and we’d love him to stay here, but as I say we will deal with that once we have sorted out what is happening on the pitch.

“David McDaid and Eoin Bradley played really well in the first half and caused Ballymena a lot of problems.

“They have struck up a really good partnership and probably the only thing missing was more goals.”
