Oldham boss Paul Dickov has revealed the club has opened contract talks with highly-rated right-back Kieran Lee.
The former Manchester United trainee has risen to prominence since being brought into the first team on a regular basis following injuries last season. After signing a new one-year deal before the start of the season, the 22-year-old now looks set to earn a longer-term deal.
"We are talking to Kieran at the moment regarding a new deal," Dickov told the Oldham Chronicle. "Kieran has been absolutely fantastic for us. Not many people realise it, but he actually took a pay cut to stay at the club this season."
