Leeds United legend Eddie Gray does not expect captain Robert Snodgrass to sign a new deal with the club in the near future.
Gray is expecting Snodgrass, who has been linked with a number of Premier League sides in the past, to see what happens in the close season before deciding his own Leeds future.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Gray said, "I would be disappointed in any player if they did not want to play in the Premiership. I hope that he will stay with us and give us one more season; I do not think he would give us any more than that.
"I don`t think he will dive in and put pen to paper straight away. I think he will wait to see what type of player is coming into the football club first and then assess it. The club have made him a good offer I believe, so that is in our favour so hopefully he will sign it because we need him around the club."
Snodgrass is going into the final year of his contract at Elland Road and boss Neil Warnock says he wants to build his squad around the influential winger.
Warnock has already spoken to Snodgrass and offered the 24 year old a new deal in what is reported will make him the highest earner at the club.
Speaking recently on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, 'I want him to know how important he is too us. I want him to be the captain next year and build the club around him. I have asked him to give us a year and one way or another he will be in the Premier League the following season.'
If Snodgrass turns down the offer of a new deal, Leeds could find themselves in the same situation they found themselves in with Jermaine Beckford a few seasons ago. Do they turn down offers for the Scotland international and hope he can help them win promotion and then leave on a free, or do they cash in on one of their main assets?
