Leeds have offered Scotland international Robert Snodgrass a lucrative new contract.
Manager Neil Warnock wants the 24-year-old winger, whose current deal expires next summer, to lead the club's promotion challenge next season.
Warnock said: "We've offered him a top contract that will make him the highest paid player at the club. I want him to be our captain next year and I've asked him to give us a year to get Leeds United into the Premier League, and if we don't get there at the end of next season I'll get him there myself because I'll help him and let him go."
"It would be a massive step forward for Rob for him to nail his colours to the mast. I think he loves the club and has a lot of loyalty and as captain I think he will support us in what we're trying to do," he added.
Warnock also confirmed that a new offer will be made to out-of-contract winger Aidy White over the course of the next week, while talks will also continue with the respective agents of Ross McCormack and Adam Clayton.
