Brisbane Roar set to re-sign midfielder Thomas Kristensen

THE impressive form of Thomas Kristensen is set to earn the Danish international a new Brisbane Roar contract.

Kristensen, 33, signed a season-long deal with the Roar when he linked with the three-time A-League champions in July after two years with Dutch club ADO Den Haag.

He had big shoes to fill, replacing the club?s reigning player of the year Corona ? who returned to Spain ? in the holding midfield role. And Kristensten has not disappointed, defying an injury affected pre-season to become not only the midfield enforcer the Roar had been searching for, but also a threat when going forward.

Roar football director Craig Moore said he would hold talks this week with Kristensen?s agent and was confident of finalising a contract extension.

?Thomas has been excellent for us and he?s enjoying his football here,? Moore said. ?We?re keen to keep him and he?s keen to stay.?

Kristensen is among a host of Roar players off contract at the end of the season. Others include Jamie Maclaren, Thomas Broich, Jade North, Michael Theo, Luke DeVere, Dimitri Petratos, Manuel Arana and Jacob Pepper.

Key striker Maclaren has rejected Brisbane?s offer to re-sign him, while attacking weapon Petratos is yet to accept a new deal that has been put in front of him.

Ipswich-based Western Pride poised to join A-League expansion fight


While the Strikers have made no secret of their intention to be part of an expanded A-League, the Pride have gone about their business quietly as they wait for Football Federation Australia to unveil the criteria bidders must satisfy. Those criteria will reportedly be released early next year, and that?s when the Pride will make a final decision on whether to formally apply to join Brisbane Roar in flying Queensland?s flag in the national competition. ?We?d love to be part of the A-League but only if we can sustain it, and until we see the criteria, we won?t know,? Pride general manager Pat Boyle said.

But there?s no doubt the Pride are making plans. Boyle said influential Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale had helped secure wealthy potential investors.The Pride are also conducting a feasibility study in determining where their potential home ground should be. A boutique Springfield stadium and a redeveloped North Ipswich Reserve have been identified as two possibilities.Boyle said Suncorp Stadium, the home of the Roar and where Strikers chairman Bruce Atterton-Evan
