Jamie Cureton: Out of contract in the summer

The striker, 37, who scored 21 times and finished second in the race for the division's golden boot, is out of contract after City's trip to Chesterfield on Saturday.

And the former Norwich forward, who is three goals short of the 250 landmark, admits he would be interested to stay with the Grecians.

"Yes, if we can sort something out," Cureton told the BBC South West when asked if he wanted to remain with Paul Tisdale's men.

"We haven't spoken and I know the budget is always tight here and I don't know what they're looking at.

"They might be looking the other way now and bringing the youth through. We've got a lot of young players here.

"That said, we've had no conversations whatsoever so I'm sure we'll have one either this week or next week and say where we stand.

"It's down to the club. They might say they don't want me to sign and then the decision is made for me.

"I've got no other options at the moment. I haven't spoken to anyone. I just want to get the season done. After Saturday it's a case of sitting down and looking at options and seeing where I go."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
