Coleraine defender Lyndon Kane has agreed a new two-year deal at the Showgrounds with the option of a third year.

The new contract will see right-back Kane stay with the Bannsiders until the end of the 2021-22 season.

The 22-year-old has made 131 appearances for Coleraine since making his debut against Glentoran in October 2014.

Indded, he would have more caps had it not been for two unfortunate foot injuries that ruled him out for long periods in 2017 and 2018.

This season, Kane has also worn the captain's armband on occasion when Stephen O'Donnell has been unavailable, demonstrating his importance to Oran Kearney's side.

“I am over the moon that Lyndon has agreed to stay at the club,” said manager Kearney.

“It has been well documented the injuries Lyndon has suffered in the last couple of years, but it is testament to him that he has got over them and looks back to his best.

Sign In

“He was quick to remind me that he has played more games this season than the last two combined, so touch wood, he can look forward to a promising career.”

Kane – who made his breakthrough into the first-team after featuring for the Reserves – insists the club is ‘very close to his heart’ and wants to add more silverware during his time on the Ballycastle Road.

“I am delighted have signed a new deal. The club is very close to my heart and it’s great to be staying on," commented Kane.

“They’ve done a lot for me over the past few seasons with my injuries and it’s great to be working under Oran again.

"Hopefully we can add more silverware to the Irish Cup triumph from 2018.”
