The agent of Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford has warned that his client may consider a move away from Elland Road this summer. The 25-year-old netted 34 for the Whites this season, but has only one year of his current deal left to run and has been linked with Coventry City. Beckford's agent, Nick Rubery, told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "I'll be speaking to Leeds this week to discuss his position. "He's got a year left on his contract and he needs to know where he stands. "I don't know what Leeds are thinking with regards to their future plans and what part he might play in them, but it's something I need to clarify. "Jermaine's scored a lot of goals in League One and he obviously wants to test himself at a higher level, but he's very open to the idea of signing a new contract with Leeds. "He's not looking to move on, but his situation needs sorting out."
