Leon Legge says he’s happy at Gillingham as he waits to find out whether he will be offered a new deal at Priestfield.

The defender has forced his way back into the team over the last three games and scored a memorable injury-time equaliser in the 2-2 draw at Preston on Tuesday night.

He’s among several senior players out of contract in the summer and facing an uncertain future.

He’d like to stay but accepts he may not feature in boss Justin Edinburgh’s plans for next season.

Legge said: “I’ve been here two-and-a-half years now and that’s flown by. My wife’s happy here but with football you just never know.

“It can be a bit frustrating sometimes when you’re a bit unsure whether you’re coming or going, so you do have to keep your options open, just in
case.

“But I’ll leave it down to the final talks at the end of the season, see what the gaffer says and the chairman and just see what happens. You never know, the gaffer might have different plans. That’s football.

“Everyone understands that’s what it can be like and sometimes you do have to keep your options open. But I’m happy playing football here.”
