Beverland focused on future with Coleraine

By Graham Luney

Howard Beverland is unaware and unfazed by any speculation linking him with a move to Linfield.

The Coleraine centre-back is one of the Premiership's most consistent performers but his Bannsiders contract has another two years to run after this season.

Beverland is flattered by any link with the champions but he is happy to commit himself to Oran Kearney's revolution in the north-west.

"I must be doing something right to have my name linked with Linfield," said Beverland who turned 23 on Saturday.

"It's flattering but Coleraine are a fantastic club and Oran (Kearney) is a fantastic manager who I have a great relationship with.

"I have every faith in what Oran is doing at Coleraine and where the team is heading. With a few new faces coming in in the summer we can keep moving in the right direction.

"I'm fully focused on the remaining games Coleraine have and as far as my contract goes I have two years left after this season because I signed an extension. You will always get whispers of players moving but Oran will be open and honest with me and we trust each other. That wil not change."
