Abstract (Document Summary)

Club chairman Peter Ridsdale has already revealed that he plans to back [David O'Leary] to the hilt in the transfer market, with the possibility of the chequebook being opened this week. O'Leary, however, believes it is just as important to keep hold of those he values most presently on the books.

Top of the list are captain and South African internationalist Lucas Radebe and England goalkeeper Nigel Martyn, who the manager hopes will commit themselves to the club by signing extended contracts and thus prevent them being poached by another club.

O'Leary, handed a two-and-a-half-year contract on Sunday after four games in charge as caretaker, said: "I think I have the respect of both Lucas and Nigel. Lucas is a tremendous player and, as far as I'm concerned, his feet should be put in cement, he should be nailed down and never allowed to leave this club."
