Coleraine manager Oran Kearney has revealed that he has spoken to Dungannon's on-loan striker Darren Boyce about his progress at the Swifts.
Boyce remains on Coleraine's books even though he moved to Dungannon on a one-year loan deal last summer.
"At the minute I haven't decided what will happen in January," said the Coleraine manager.
"I will speak to Darren Murphy (Dungannon manager) closer to the time and take it from there."
Kearney added: "I spoke with Darren last week about how things are going for him.
"His goal-scoring ability has never been in question but I think Darren needed to re-evaluate a few things. I think the move away has helped him do that."
Boyce rejoined Coleraine from Glentoran last season but failed to hold down a first-team place at the Showgrounds.
He has scored 12 goals for the Stangmore Park outfit this season including a hat-trick against Glenavon last Friday.
Coleraine have slipped to 10th in the table after a dismal recent run.
Boyce's goals have helped the seventh-placed Swifts produce a good start to the season, and he was named player of the month for November by the NI Football Writers' Association.
