With his current contract set to expire in the summer, Sadlier was offered fresh terms several months ago but has yet to sign a new deal.

Though boss Moore is to begin work on his squad for next season in the coming weeks, he is not minded to set a deadline for Sadlier’s future to be determined.

And he has no worries about the forward’s mindset whilever his contract remains under question.

“I’m a big believer that he’s contracted here until the end of the season and it doesn’t matter if he’s got one week left, it’s something you adhere to in terms of the contract you’ve got,” Moore said.

“You sign a contract with the club and you keep working.

“Sads has been and will remain professional as I will in terms of negotiations.

“I think everyone here would like to see him stay on.

“Sads is happy here. He’s learning, he’s developing, there are more parts of his game that he’s got strong with and parts he can get stronger with.

“He’s certainly found the right fit in terms of the way the season has gone with him.”

Sadlier is Rovers’ top scorer this term with 11 goals so far but Moore says the 25-year-old believes he has plenty more to give Rovers yet.

Moore said: “Sads has had his best season to date since he’s been here with us.

“He’s scored 11 goals which for someone in his position and where he is has been absolutely tremendous. He feels he’s got so much more to give and do.”
