'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Millen waiting on trio

Bristol City manager Keith Millen is expecting three of his players to decide on their future within the next fortnight.

Louis Carey, Stephen Henderson and Nicky Maynard have all been offered new terms to remain at Ashton Gate, but have had deals held up by the players being on holiday.

Irish goalkeeper Henderson, 23, has been offered a new two-year deal after impressing on loan at Yeovil Town in League One last season.

But his future is up in the air after City surprisingly renewed the contracts of Dean Gerken and David James, leaving the former Villa reserve stopper to consider his future elsewhere.

"Stephen has been made a good offer and it is there on the table for him," Millen to the Bristol Evening Post. "He is still away on holiday and I have not heard from him.

"I don't want to lose him, because I think he has a big future in the game, but if something comes up and another club comes in for him, offering first-team football, then I suppose he is going to look at that.

"If another club wants to take Stephen, then they will have to make us an offer, because we want to keep him. But we are not at that stage yet and I'm hopeful he will decide to stay with us."


City legend Louis Carey has been offered a new one-year contract, after making 603 appearances since making his debut against York City back in 1995.

The 34-year-old centre-back is expected to sign the new terms when he returns from holiday, despite interest from newly-promoted Brighton.

Millen added: "Again, he is away at the moment and things have not moved very far.

"But I'm not worried about that situation. I know Louis wants to stay and I want him here next season as well. I'm sure something can be agreed between him and the club."


But the future of in-demand striker Nicky Maynard's appears less clear cut, although the club remain confident he will put pen-to-paper next month on a new two-year extension to make him the highest paid player at the club.
