Leeds United’s Warnock indicates possible Snodgrass departure

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock suggests that captain Robert Snodgrass may leave the club this summer.

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock suggests that captain Robert Snodgrass may leave the club this summer.

The 24-year old Scotland midfielder has 12 months to run on his contract but Warnock has indicated that the club may look to sell him this summer, or in the winter, if he agrees to sign the new deal he has been offered.

"My gut feeling is I'm not too sure,” Warnock told the Yorkshire evening Post.

"I'd imagine his agents are talking to everybody and it depends who comes in and the telephone money they talk about. But they'd still have to agree a fee with us.

"For us to let him go this summer, the fee would have to be very big. There'll be no getting away from that. I've said to the chairman (Ken Bates ) 'if we have to keep him until Christmas, we keep him until Christmas'.

"If I get six months out of him with the team I've got and he wants to stay here on the same money then good luck to him. I'd like to keep Rob until at least Christmas.

"What I've said to him is 'sign your contract. If we're nowhere near by Christmas then I'll sell you at Christmas. If by the end of the season we don't go up then I'll make sure you're in the Premier League'.' I don't think I can do any more than that."
