Leeds United chief executive Shaun Harvey has been quick to deny rumours that the club will not be offering striker Luciano Becchio a new contract when his current deal runs out.
Becchio joined Leeds in the summer of 2008 after a successful trial with the club and signed a three-year deal that runs out at the end of this season.
Speaking on the official website, Harvey said, “The story is completely untrue. We`re committed to keeping him at Elland Road.”
The Argentinian as been a regular in the starting line up for the whites in his two seasons at the club and he has scored 36 goals in the process.
Harvey as indicated that the club will sit down with Becchio once the season as started and the transfer window as closed and sort out a new deal.
The 26 year old is hugely popular with the fans for his hand working displays in the Leeds attack.
With the departure of Beckford in the summer, fans will be hoping that Becchio can break the 20-goal mark in the following season having gone close in his two previous.
Becchio as already got on the goal trail in pre season and as scored four goals in Leeds last two friendly games.
