Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the new deal offered to Michael Brown is ‘extremely reduced` on the deal he had in his first season at Elland Road.
Brown signed for Leeds last summer following his release from Portsmouth and after a slow start under previous boss Simon Grayson he flourished under Warnock, a manager he had worked with before at Sheffield United.
Warnock is keen for Brown to play his part in the clubs push for promotion next season and admits he could surprise a few people.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “I think Michael has done a good job since I have been here and he is very good to have around the place.
“Financially it wasn`t possible to offer him anywhere near what he was on so we have offered him an extremely reduced contract for next season.
“It is the opportunity for him to come back. He knows what he can do and he might surprise a few people if he keeps his place in the team. It would not surprise me.”
The 35 year old made 26 appearances for Leeds in his first season. He started in 11 of Warnock`s 14 games in charge, missing just 3 games through suspension following his sending off against Derby County.
