LUFC Grayson determined to hang on to star players

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is determined to hang on to his star players this summer but admits the club would have to let them go if the offer was too good to turn down.

Midfielders Robert Snodgrass and Max Gradel have been the centre of attention this summer.

Scottish international Snodgrass as been the subject of bids from newly promoted to the Premier League Norwich City.

Leeds have already reportedly turned down bids of £3.5 and £5 million from the Canaries and have slapped an £8 million price tag on the winger.

Last seasons Player of the Year Max Gradel has been linked with a number of clubs over the summer including German Bundesliga side SV Hamburg as well as Premier League sides, Fulham, Swansea City, Stoke City and Newcastle United.

Championship side West Ham United have also shown an interest but manager Simon Grayson said last week that the club had yet to receive any written bids for the player who netted on 18 occasions last season.

Grayson, speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post said, "Obviously if somebody offers money that you think is too good to turn down then we`d go out and replace them.
"It`s not like any money that comes in will be left in the bank - we`ll be going out to spend it straight away.
"But I`m envisaging that both players and every other player at the club will still be here at the start of the season."

Leeds have already lost three regulars who were in the first team last season.

Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson left on free transfers after becoming free agents and the club have already accepted one bid, for what they classed, 'for the good of the club,` when they sold goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to Leicester City.
