Talks With Boss Resume This Week

Abbott had himself asked for talks to be put on hold until the season ended. Now that it has, as John Nixon told the official website, talks will resume about what happens next: 'We have spoken to Greg on a number of occasions throughout this season about the way forward but he requested a number of weeks ago for talks to be suspended until the main business was concluded.
'That included closing off the final run of fixtures and then taking care of the sensitive issues of contract offers and player releases at the beginning of this week.
'We expect to pick up talks on the offer of a further one-year deal again later this week and we should be able to make an announcement following that in due course.'
Issues with Graham Kavanagh and Tony Caig should also be sorted out; with it expected that they'll be staying on as coaching next season.
