Jonny keen on striking a deal

Have your say

JONNY Howson is close to agreeing a new deal at Leeds United which will keep him at Elland Road beyond the end of next season.

The 23-year-old captain is under contract until the end of the 2012/13 campaign but is in talks over extending his stay. Howson said: “Although it’s taking a bit of time, I’m not in a massive rush. That’s always the way with negotiations.”
