COLERAINE manager Oran Kearney insists star striker Jamie McGonigle is not for sale after the club rejected a bid from Irish League champions Crusaders.
It is understood the offer would have smashed the Irish League transfer fee record which remains the 50,000 Linfield paid for striker Glenn Ferguson in 1998.
McGonigle (22) has been the Stripes' top scorer in each of the last two seasons and notched 20 goals in the 2017/18 season.
The Dungiven man's eye-catching performances saw him nominated for the Ulster Footballer of the Year Award while he was named in the NI Football Writers' Team of the Year.
"The bid being rejected is absolutely the stance that we have taken," Bannsiders' boss Kearney told The Chronicle.
