Speculation continues to mount over the future of Linfield midfielder Philip Lowry.

Lowry has been offered a new contract by Blues manager Warren Feeney but is believed to be considering his future.

It is understood the 24-year-old is keen on securing full-time football, with League of Ireland outfit Derry City having been linked with the midfielder.

A move to the Brandywell could be enticing for Lowry – who hails from the North West area – while Coleraine have also been tentatively linked with the player.

Lowry – who moved to Linfield from Institute back in 2009 – has won three titles and three Irish Cups during his time at Windsor Park.

The midfielder has scored 53 goals in 204 appearances since making the move to Windsor Park.

Last season he scored 11 times in 40 games as the Blues finished second in the Danske Bank Premiership – six points behind champions Cliftonville.
