Deadline set for trio
Leeds trio Robert Snodgrass, Ross McCormack and Aidy White have until the beginning of next month to decide whether their futures lie at Elland Road.
Skipper Snodgrass and leading goalscorer McCormack both have one year to run on their current deals, while winger White is out of contract in the summer. All three players are still in talks with the club having been made new offers.
"I haven't really given anybody a deadline as such," said manager Neil Warnock. "But I think we'll be getting round to saying 'the offer's on the table'. I don't think we can go too far beyond the end of May really.
"I think I'll need to know by the time I come back off holiday where I'm batting so that we can progress, and even if we don't like to accept we will lose players, by that time, if they haven't re-signed we've got to look at what we're going to do.
"I'm starting on July 11 with the full onslaught of pre-season and they've all got to be in good shape by then because we go straight into it.
"So I really want to have a clear idea when I come back in the first week of June. I want to get stuck into it, but it's difficult with players, agents and club representatives on holiday, it's not easy to tie them all in to get deals done. It's not straightforward nowadays."
