PACEY attacker Stuart Dallas is expected to sign a new contract with League One club Brentford in the next few days.

The former Coagh United and Crusaders player has been offered a new contract by the west Londoners and barring an eleventh hitch expects to put to pen to paper sooner rather than later.


Currently out on loan at Northampton Town, the former Tyrone Milk Cup player and youth international returned home for the weekend. And the former IFA Premiership player of the year was on the terrace watching Saturday’s all Tyrone Championship One derby between his hometown club and Dergview at Hagan Park.

Speaking to the Ulster Herald the Cookstown native confirmed he had been offered an extended stay at Griffin Park.

“I’ve been offered another two years and hopefully within the next week or two things will move forward on that front. I’ll finally know what I’m doing,” said the affable 22-year-old.

“You want to know what’s happening so you can plan your life. Obviously with the next two years being offered to me, I can relax now.

“I love life at Brentford. Being in London itself is just great. To get something agreed in the next few days and weeks would be great.”

Dallas has just agreed a two-month extension to his loan period at the Cobblers but was cup-tied for Sunday’s first round FA Cup clash against Bishop Stortford at the ProKit UK Stadium

Omagh's Jamie Glackin is set to complete a move to Crusaders.

EXPERIENCED midfielder Richard Clarke is expected to sign for Ballinamallard United later this week.
