Caolan Lavery is closing in on a new contract and wants to stay at Hillsborough.

His current deal expires in the summer and he has revealed that talks are already under way.

Lavery, who will be on international duty tonight, told The Star: “I am actually up at the end of the season. We are just in the process of sorting that out.

“My representatives are speaking to Wednesday over getting it extended. I am leaving it to them. I am not getting involved at all. That’s for them to work out.

“I would be happy to stay. The club have been good with me. They have helped me with my development.

“I’ve just got to keep doing what I am doing at the moment. I am putting in good performances. I just need to keep playing well and hopefully let my football do the talking and go from there.”

The 21-year-old striker was recalled to the starting line-up last Saturday after a run on the bench.

He is in the Northern Ireland Under 21 squad to face Italy in Lurgan tonight. He said: “It should be a good match. Away they beat us 2-0. We owe them one. We are at home; all the boys are looking forward to it.”
