Crewe Alexandra boss Dario Gradi has confirmed he is likely to offer goalkeeper Adam Legzdins a new contract.

Legzdins started Crewe's final three games of the season in the absence of the injured Steve Phillips, but is out of contract in the summer.

However, he is now set to be offered the chance to stay next season and provide competition for Phillips, who is expected to join permanently from Bristol Rovers.

"Adam has all the makings of a good keeper, and he has done well when he has played for us, I have said that before," Gradi told the club's official website.

"I am pretty sure we will be offering him a new contract, but I haven't formally offered one to him yet."

Meanwhile, Danny O'Donnell insists he holds no bitterness towards Crewe after the defender learned he will not be offered a new contract.

O'Donnell said: "I've done well at times this season, but it's been a case of trying to hit a bit of consistency.

"I wish Crewe all the best. There is no bitterness. I've played more than 100 league games, so I want to carry on playing at a high standard.

"I've got an agent, so now's the time for him to earn his money."
