Leeds United have opened new contract talks with influential defender Frazer Richardson. The 26-year-old, whose current deal expires at the end of next month, is the longest-serving player on the Elland Road books having made his debut for the club seven years ago. He has gone on to make 173 first-team appearances for United, finding the net five times. Richardson returned to action in the last game of the season against Northampton Town after being sidelined for more than three months through injury. Jermaine Beckford, whose current deal expires at the end of next season, has also been offered a new contract.
