Leeds calm over Beckford sale

Leeds calm over Beckford sale

Coventry City target Jermaine Beckford remains firmly under contract at Leeds United despite being transfer-listed and Elland Road chairman Ken Bates is in no rush to change that situation.

Sheffield United and Middlesbrough have also been linked with the player but, Gareth Barry's £12m move to Manchester City aside, football seems to be winding down for its summer holidays after the climax of the domestic season.

'We have had no inquiries yet, but that is not usual at this time because the season has just ended and most managers, scouts and coaches are away winding down,' Bates told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

'They come back in the middle of June and start thinking.

'But we are in no hurry. Jermaine is with us until June 2010 and if we don't get what we consider to be a reasonable offer, we will keep him.'
