Goalkeeper Adam Legzdins looks set to leave Crewe Alexandra after rejecting the offer of a new 12-month contract.The 23-year-old made just eight appearances for the Alex after joining from Birmingham in June 2008. [LNB]Manager Dario Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke: "He probably would have started the season in goal so I was surprised that he didn't take up the offer. [LNB]"Credit to him, he wants to play in a first team somewhere, but I don't think he'll go for more than we offered him." [LNB]He had to wait 14 months before making his debut for Crewe, after his first season at the Alexandra Stadium was interrupted by a succession of injuries. [LNB]Legzdins played the final three matches of the campaign in place of the injured Steve Phillips, who underwent a shoulder operation in April. [LNB]He also played eight times in a loan spell at non-league Weymouth in March 2009. [LNB]Crewe will be owed compensation by any club wishing to sign Legzdins because he is under 24.
