Derry City target Darren McCauley has been placed on the transfer list by Coleraine after rejecting a ‘lucrative contract’ by the club.
The 27-year-old has previously admitted he would consider a return to his hometown club if the opportunity became a reality, with the Bannsiders now permitting him to leave in the January transfer window.
The winger, who has six months left on his current contract, is aiming to play full-time football next, with Derry City and Northern Irish outfit Larne both in the hunt for his signature.
In a statement made on Friday, Coleraine said: “Coleraine FC can confirm that midfielder Darren McCauley has been placed on the transfer list.
“Despite a lucrative contract being offered to him, he has decided that his footballing future lies elsewhere than The Showgrounds.
“Providing the interests of Coleraine FC are met, Darren will be permitted to leave the club during the January transfer window.”
