Middle linebacker Henoc Muamba is hopeful a contract extension between him and the Bombers will be worked out at some point in the next eight months.

Muamba is entering his option year, and as the first overall draft pick in 2011 and the heart of the defence it would be wise for the Blue and Gold to get his name on a new deal ASAP.

He already turned down a generous offer in the off-season, according to a CFL source, but he wants to return.

“It’s getting taken care of,” Muamba said. “Hopefully the sooner the better, obviously, but it’s just a matter of being patient. I can’t worry about that right now.
