Beckford taken off transfer list

18 Jul 2009 - 10:45:50

Prolific Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford has been taken off the Elland Road transfer list.

The 25-year-old, who has 12 months left on his current contract, has scored 54 goals in 100 appearances for United, including 34 last term.

Chairman Ken Bates said: "I've discussed the situation with Simon (Grayson) and we've taken Jermaine off the transfer list.

"We're quite happy to keep him. He's under contract until the end of the season and we're looking forward to him playing his part in getting us promoted this season.

"He didn't ask for a transfer remember. He asked for a wage increase which we offered, but his agent wanted more and we weren't willing to pay.

"Becks is very happy at Leeds. Whatever he's got he gives us, and he's one of those players who, even if he has a bad game, pops up and scores unlikely goals so he'll always contribute.

"Hopefully he'll score another 34 goals this season!"
