The forward has been offered a new deal by Rovers with his current contract due to expire in the summer.

Boss Darren Moore said last week that the ball was in Sadlier’s court when it came to the signing of the deal.

“I was offered a new contract a while back,” Sadlier said.

“My agents have been in and they’ve had me in and they’re still in discussions.

“To be honest, I just leave it to them.

“I’m really enjoying my football at the moment and I’m really happy to be playing week in, week out and working on things and learning things with the staff here.

“I think we can really push up the table and I’m really enjoying it.”

There has been speculation the 25-year-old is on the radar of other clubs with suggestions that ex-Rovers boss Grant McCann is keen for a reunion at Hull City.

But Sadlier insists he has not been made aware of any outside interest in his services.

“No, I haven’t heard any interest,” he said. “There might be, I’m not sure.

“I let them [agents] deal with all that and they let me just do the stuff on the field.

Sadlier says he will always have a debt of gratitude to Rovers for providing him with a platform to launch his career in English football after returning from the League of Ireland.

“When I came over from Ireland, I wanted to come to a club where I would play,” he said.

“A lot of boys coming over make the mistake of taking the first club that comes their way and they end up not playing much and drifting down the leagues.

“I came over and I chose a club that I thought I could really push on and progress in and it’s worked so far.

“With the change of manager it was a bit different in the summer.

“But I’ve kept my place in the team and played most of the games this year and I’m really enjoying my football.

“I think it’s a club that has been really good to me.”
