LUFC Grayson confident of keeping Gradel

Despite the continued speculation surrounding Max Gradel, Leeds United manager Simon Grayson is confident that they can hold on to the Ivory Coast international.

Gradel has been linked with a whole host of clubs throughout the summer with Leeds already reportedly turning down an offer from West Ham United.

Fellow championship side West Ham are still being linked with a move for Gradel as are Premier League side Fulham.

Gradel is moving into the final year of his contract following his signing from Leicester City in January 2010.

Leeds have seen players leave for free at the end of their contracts in the last two summers and boss Grayson is confident of holding onto last season`s player of the year, who netted 18 times in his first season in the championship.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "We are very confident, we have turned down bids. He`s a good player and we want to keep our good players. We would like to think we can fulfil the ambitions of our players here by getting to the next level."

The summer transfer window closes next week until January when it reopens until the end of that month.

Leeds fans will be hoping that the club can sort out any contract negotiations with the tricky winger and not go into the farcical scenario that we have seen with Jermaine Beckford, Bradley Johnson and Neil Kilkenny in recent seasons.

Keeping him is easy just refuse the bids, but unless a contract extension can be negotiated this week doing so would be stupid unless our current administration are so confident we'll get promotion and be able to offer him a better deal at the end of the season. He is worth a lot of money to the club so a sale will be in the best interests of the club. Wonder i if the money made will go to SG tho?
