Hoilett contract can wait reckons the boss
Steve Kean has clarified that flying winger/jet aeroplane Junior Hoilett will not be offered a new deal just yet despite only having 18 months to go on his current one.
Hoilett has been Rovers best player since breaking into the side under Kean but our manager doesn't see the panic in discussing a new deal just yet.
Kean spoke to Sky Sports and said - 'We will progress his development and continue to give him match exposure but we probably won't upset him at the moment by starting to talk about a new contract in case that affects his good form'
'We know he is playing well and hopefully he feels he is a big part of the club going forward.
'At the appropriate time we will sit down and discuss an extension of his contract.'
The lad himself has admitted that he is happy with how things are and that he is just pleased to be in the first team and being given license to express himself.
Hoilett chipped in - 'When you are in the team week in, week out, you are happy but you have to stay focused'
'The manager put me in a different role and gave me the confidence to express myself and I am delighted by that.
'Everything is going in the right direction.'
So happy days then?
