Greg Abbott admits he has spoken to Lee Miller about a contract extension as the Carlisle striker prepares to decide his future.

Miller sees his two-year deal at Brunton Park expire this summer having proved a big success since his arrival from Middlesbrough in 2011, scoring 23 goals in 57 appearances.

Abbott told the club's official website: "I like Lee Miller, and so do the players.

"I think the fans would like to know if he will be with us or not, but he'll make his decision at the right time for him.

"We have to hope that he'll give us another 12 months because I think he's an important player for us.

"I talk to him regularly about his situation but he has to make a decision that works for him. He has told me that he's serious about staying but that he wants to see what's around and he wants to think about what will be the best thing for him to do next season.

"You have to allow players to do that. That's the way the game is and we have to wait to see what comes of it."

Meanwhile, Carlisle's head of football affairs Dennis Booth, who previously worked as assistant manager to three different bosses, has left the club.
