DERBY COUNTY starlet Izale McLeod is ready to pledge his future to the club after being offered a new contract.
The Rams are eager to tie down the youngster who has made the breakthrough into the first team this season.
The 18-year-old has now made 17 first team appearances for Derby, scoring twice.
John Gregory recognises the ability of the youngster, who is still on a scholarship deal.
McLeod's original deal was due to expire in the summer, but now he is ready to pen a new contract.
The player's agent Gino Culbertson confirmed to planetfootball.com that his client is ready to sign the new deal.
"We have got a contract and they have offered him a two-year contract.
"There are are a few minor points to resolve, but we should put pen-to-paper next week."
McLeod is known to have attracted interest from Premiership clubs, but now he looks ready to pledge his future to The Rams.
