Leeds United midfielders Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson's contracts are set to expire at the end of June but whether Leeds decide to open negotiations in an attempt to renew the duos contracts remains to be seen.

A fans poll on a leading Leeds United fans forum showed an overwhelming percentage in wanting the pair to stay at the club.

Kilkenny, 25 and Johnson, 24 are still relatively young players who one would suspect United manager Simon Grayson would like to ideally keep at the club.  The midfielders have amassed 237 appearances adding 26 goals to the team's cause, since signing for a combined fee of £300,000 in 2008.  

Bradley Johnson has in the past expressed a desire to remain a Leeds United player despite contract negotiations breaking down between his agent and the club earlier this season. Johnson's recent form has been impressive and will have no doubt attracted potential suitors should United decide not to retain his services.

Neil Kilkenny however is widely expected to move on having felt he's achieved all he can at the club. The Australian international's recall into the United side in recent times has seen a transformation in the teams' fortunes, and it's of no coincidence that Leeds seem to perform better with him on the field.

Both singed under the stewardship of Dennis Wise in the January 2008 transfer window have played important roles in United's 2009/10 promotion from League One and the club's return season to the Championship sharing 87 appearances between them this term.
