Kilkenny wants to stay

24 January 2011 03:00
Leeds midfielder Neil Kilkenny is eager to resolve his future at Elland Road once he returns from international duty with Australia. The 25-year-old is a part of the Socceroos side that has reached the semi-finals of the Asian Cup and will be hoping to get game time for the third successive match against Uzbekistan on Tuesday. Kilkenny told Press Association Sport: "There's nothing to discuss about my contract at the moment. "Discussions have started, they have been going on for a long time so we'll wait and see when I get back. "At the end of the day if Leeds want to keep me they know I want to stay, so the ball is in their court." Kilkenny had been an integral part of the Leeds midfield prior to departing to Qatar towards the end of last month and had been hoping to thrash out a new deal with his current contract due to expire at the end of the season.
