York City left back, James Meredith is keen to talk to the club before making a decision on who he will play for next season. He is currently out of contract and has told the press that a number of clubs have shown an interest in him.
Championship clubs Watford and Burnley are both thought to be admirers of the Australian-born defender.
Meredith was an influential member of the team that clinched a Wembley double for York in the FA Trophy and Blue Square Bet Premier play-off finals last month and he may yet decide to stay with the Minstermen in 2012/13 depending on how talks with York City gaffer,Gary Mills develop.
The former Derby County, Sligo Rovers and Shrewsbury Town defender, who can also play in midfield looks set to have talks with York after returning from his native Australia. The full back is entitled to a free transfer under the Bosman ruling having turned 24 in April but there is still a chance he might sign a new contract for York and play a fourth season at Bootham Crescent. Meredith signed for York City in May 2009 after turning down an offer from AFC Telford United who he had joined on loan from Shrewsbury the previous season.
Talking about his situation, Meredith said:
"At the moment, I am keeping my options open and listening to what other clubs have to say. I need to have a discussion with York because it would have to be a very good offer for me to leave.
"My phone wouldn`t work while I was in Australia but I have texted Gary Mills this week and he has texted me back, but he is overseas now. After talking to my agent and seeing what the options are, I am going to speak with (City assistant manager) Darron Gee.
"From what I know, there`s been a fair bit of interest from more than one club above League Two level but I`ve got to make the best all-round decision. I love York and am settled in Leeds where I live but I`ll have to see what everybody is saying and then make a decision."
The fact he is settled in Leeds could make Burnley the favourite to sign him rather than having him move down south to play for Watford.
