All contract talks at Dens Park have been put on the backburner, according to Dundee boss John Brown.
And that includes his own, too, with scores of players and staff uncertain of their Dens Park futures.
With the Dark Blues’ immediate concern seeing off Hearts on Saturday, Bomber has banned talk of negotiations for any of his out-of-contract stars, until the club have confirmed their own destiny.
That could come on Saturday, if Dundee fail to beat Hearts or St Mirren pick up anything at Easter Road.
But Bomber is hopeful he won’t have to open that can of worms until after May 18.
“I’ve just said to them to get on with playing their football,” said the manager.
“All in all, I’m pleased with the majority of the first-team squad. Things could change over the next few weeks depending on our position.
“Hopefully, the fact we’re still in the SPL on May 18 might impact on negotiations.”
In recent months, a number of players have come out of their shells and proven they’re more than capable of playing at the highest level.
That will have made a few SPL managers sit up and take notice, according to Bomber.
He said: “All I can say to the squad is that they’re doing themselves a service by playing well.
“There aren’t many First Division players here. Almost every single one of these boys is capable of plying their trade in the top flight.
“If they aren’t getting a contract here, they could attract interest from elsewhere. I can see a few SPL teams taking a look at a few of my players between now and the end of the season.
“That is if we don’t survive.”
One player below the first-team pool who has been turning heads in recent months is youngster Craig Wighton.
The U/20 team striker is unable to play for the first-team due to SPL rules.
But after another two-goal showing for the youth side, Bomber is backing Wighton to have a big impact next season.
Even going as far to say the 15-year-old is the brightest talent he’s seen at that level.
“From what I’ve seen here, that lad has something special,” he said of Wighton, who, due to school commitments, has trained just once with the first-team squad.
“He could be a big player for the club in the future.
“He’s one of the best talents of that age I have seen coming through. He’s committed to us even though he can’t sign till he’s 16.
“A few people might come in and try to take him but, because of his age, I think his development is best served here.
“I have a good background of dealing with players of his age he needs to keep working hard and learn the game.
“The boy has a great opportunity to learn here in Dundee.”
