Great Britain captain Andrew Sullivan says he wants to see commitment from Leicester Riders before signing a new full-time contract with the club.

Sullivan initially joined on a week-to-week deal in October.

The 31-year-old told the club's website: "I can't commit to a situation unless I know I'm going to get a commitment back.

"It would be something that would be very good but we'll have to see how things go."

The Riders have two games in the BBL this weekend - an away game at Sheffield on Friday is followed by the visit of Mersey Tigers on Saturday.

"We have a very talented team and a bunch of guys who want to win for each other," added Sullivan. "Those are the kinds of things that I want to be a part of.

"Myself and [general manager] Russell [Levenston] have spoken about it and both parties are open to me possibly being here. It's a matter of getting it done properly.

"I wouldn't have had conversations about coming here or potentially sign for the club if I didn't think there was a good chance to win."
