Young winger Caiolan Brennan has agreed a two-year professional contract with Coleraine.
Brennan, still only 18, has been part of the first team set-up at The Showgrounds since making his debut almost three years ago against Institute in the North West Cup.
He has progressed through the ranks in that time, going on to make five senior appearances and was part of the travelling squad to Maribor for the recent Europa League win.
In order to gain more experience he will be loan out to Premier Intermediate League side Limavady United until January but, as manager Oran Kearney told the official club site, Brennan remains very much part of his plans at the Bannsiders.
"He will go out on loan to Limavady United until Christmas to get some senior football and to begin that journey of breaking the mould between being a young player and trying to get into a first-team.
“We were fortunate in the past when the likes of Lyndon Kane, Brad Lyons and Jamie McGonigle broke through that we were 8th or 9th in the table and had nothing to lose in terms of giving them 40 appearances.
“It’s a bit harder with where we are at in the league and where we would like to be to do that, so it’s up to us to try and find a way to bridge that gap for him."
