Abbott wants to confirm each of the new one-year deals at the same time but some minor details need to be ironed out amid ongoing the talks before a formal announcement is made.

Abbott, assistant manager Graham Kavanagh - understood to now be out of the running for the Hartlepool vacancy - as well as coaches Tony Caig and Eric Kinder have each been offered fresh terms.

"There are no real issues with it but I do want all of the coaching staff to be able to announce together," Abbott told the club's official website. "Hopefully we should be in a position to do that very soon.

"All I do in the meantime is get on with my job. I've been told that everything will be sorted and I'm comfortable with that.

"I think it is important that we do resolve it so that the fans know where we all are, but the basics of it are that we have received our offers and there are just one or two small things to sort out.

"Like I say, I'm comfortable with all of that. My focus has been on looking at how we work and on restructuring things for next season. The other business tends to take care of itself.

"This is normal for contract talks. It happens with players and coaches because it has to be right for everybody. We're a small coaching team and I think we're all happy to wait for everything to be agreed before we announce as a group."

Meanwhile, Abbott has confirmed Matty Robson, Paul Thirlwell, Lee Miller and Josh Todd have approximately another week until their deadline to accept or reject Carlisle's contract offers.
