Ben says contract talks are on-going and have been encouraging.
Ben Garratt says that dialogue between him and the Football Club has been encouraging over a new deal and that he is happy to remain at Crewe Alexandra this summer. Garratt is out of contract at the end of the season but David Artell is keen to retain the former England Youth International.
Garratt has revealed to the club’s official website that talks are on-going and he is hopeful that something will be finalised sooner rather than later but he is continuing to remain focussed on the final five games of the season.
The 24-year-old produced one of his finest ever performances for Crewe in Saturday’s derby loss at Vale Park and although he is still relatively young for a goalkeeper, the Shropshire-based stopper has now amassed a staggering 245 appearances for the Football Club.
Ben told crewealex.net: “Talks with the club are on-going and that’ll take care of itself. My focus is always on the pitch and I’ll just keep doing what I can on the pitch and we’ll see what happens.
“I’ve got a good relationship with the management and it’s important that both parties can talk to each other and that’s what we can do.
“I’ve been here what feels like a long time now. I am happy here, definitely.
"There’s always something to play for in football – contracts, futures, everything really. There’s never a game where people can afford to take their foot off the pedal."
