Mirco Antenucci gives noncommittal update on his Leeds United future

The Leeds man has been discussing his future at Elland Road.

Italian striker Mirco Antenucci has given a noncommittal update on his Leeds United future, according to Calcionews24.com.

The 30-year-old has not discussed leaving but says he will wait to see what plans the club has and 'evaluate calmly' when the time comes.

Antenucci has another year on his contract with Leeds but sounded neither optimistic nor negative about his future with the club.

The Italian was the Championship side's top scorer this season gone with 10 goals to his name.

And he said: "I have another year of contract with Leeds, we see that the company has programs [translated from Italian - this could mean *plans*] and evaluate calmly."

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old has picked his favourite moment of his debut Championship campaign at Leeds.

And Antenucci has picked his brace against Derby, when the Yorkshire side beat the (at the time) high-flying Rams 2-0.

The Italian said: "Maybe the one-two with Derby County: historic team in England and very organised."

For now, then, Antenucci may well be staying at Leeds in the short term - even if his long-term future at Elland Road isn't clear.

And what's perhaps more intriguing is just who will play alongside the Italian in Yorkshire next term. Jermaine Beckford has been linked with his former club: could he form a good partnership with Antenucci?
