Leeds aim to keep stars
Nigel Martyn
Leeds are determined to retain their top players
Leeds United chairman Peter Ridsdale will finalise new deals for Harry Kewell and Nigel Martyn before the start of the new season.

Kewell is a transfer target for Europe's top clubs and Martyn is seen as a key player for the club in the Champions League as well as being a vital part of Kevin Keegan's England squad.

Ridsdale told the Yorkshire Post: "Both players have indicated that they are willing and happy to sign new deals and I have no reason to believe that will not happen."

Leeds have also rewarded Stephen McPhail with a new five-year contract.

"In McPhail's case the player signed a contract when he was not established in the first team and became under-valued under the terms of that contract.

"He was expected to be a fringe player last season but performed much better," added Ridsdale.
