Baudet set for contract decision

Baudet is in his third season with Crewe Alexandra

The future of Crewe defender Julien Baudet is uncertain after he received an offer to play in the United States.

The club captain is out of contract in the summer, but the League One side are in discussions to keep him.

Crewe manager Gudjon Thordarson told BBC Radio Stoke: "We have to sit down and see what we can do, but I would be very keen to try and tie him down.

"He is getting fitter and improving all the time. It would be a big loss if we were to lose a player like Julien."

Baudet was named the player of the season in 2007/8, but has struggled to find his best form this season as the Alex slumped to the bottom of the division.

But the French defender has been rejuvenated since the arrival of Thordarson, a manager he also played under at Notts County.

A 1-1 draw for Crewe against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night put them four points clear of the relegation zone in League One.
