LUFC Warnock - White answer before end of season

LUFC Warnock - White answer before end of season

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock says he expects to have an answer on the future of young defender Aidy White before the end of the season.

White is out of contract in the summer and Warnock met with the player and his representatives on Monday to further discuss his future.

Warnock says he will now speak to chairman Ken Bates and CEO Shaun Harvey in a bid to keep the youngster who has been a regular in the Leeds side this season.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "I have spoken to his men and before the end of the season we will know. We will have a decision one way or the other. I have told him and his agents I would like to keep him and I have to go back discuss it with the chairman and Shaun. I am expecting us to have a decision by the end of next week."

The 20 year old is a product of the Leeds academy system and he has now made 66 appearances for the club since making his debut against Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup in August 2008.

White went on to make 9 appearances under Gary McAllister before the club sacked the manager in December.

The versatile player had to wait until the following season for his first appearance for Simon Grayson and he went on to make 15 appearances for Leeds in their promotion season.

White made just 3 appearances for Leeds last season before spending most of the season on loan at League One side Oldham Athletic where he made 24 appearances.

This season White had been an almost ever present making 39 appearances for Leeds before an ankle injury brought his season to a premature end against Watford at the end of March.

He has also broke into the Republic of Ireland under 21 squad this season and he has started all five of their games, which also included his first international goal against Liechtenstein.

His form for Ireland saw him on a shortlist of three players for the under 21 player of the year where he was beaten to the prize by Robbie Brady.

If the two parties fail to agree on a new deal then Leeds will receive compensation from the club signing White because of the players` age.
