Plymouth's Graham Coughlan is waiting to discover if Bristol City firm up their interest.Plymouth Argyle defender Graham Coughlan is waiting to discover if Bristol City firm up their interest in his services.
Coughlan admits he is unsure what the future holds for him at Home Park as he enters the final year of his contract.
The Irish stopper has not been offered a new deal as yet and there have been suggestions he will be sold in the summer by Pilgrims boss Bobby Williamson.
The Robins are understood to have held a long-standing interest in Coughlan, although a swap deal involving Danny Coles was denied in March by City boss Brian Tinnion.
Another swap has now been mooted, with Tommy Doherty purportedly heading in the opposite direction with Coughlan going to Ashton Gate.
Coughlan is looking for some direction on his future from Williamson and conceded he is aware that the League One side have been keeping tabs on his situation.
"I'm not sure what the future holds for me," said Coughlan.
"I'll be out of contract at the end of next season and no one has spoken to me about a new deal.
"I'm aware that there has been talk of other clubs being interested and I know Bristol City have been mentioned."
The 30-year-old has made nearly 200 appearances for Plymouth since he joined the club from Livingston four years ago.
