Harry Kewell is ready for summer interest in members of his improving Crawley side.

The Reds boss expects to receive offers for key players after seeing his side climb the League Two table.

Reds are planning for a trip to Port Vale after being unfortunate not to beat Swindon on Easter Monday.

Kewell believes fans enjoy watching his side’s brand of football and other clubs have spotted what is going on at the Checkatrade Stadium.

He told The Argus: “The players are learning quick and they all want to progress.

“I have had to bat off four or five clubs to keep players this season.

“I am sure I am going to have to do that at the end of the season again.

“My players are improving as players themselves.

“We are now nine months down the line.

“You look at clubs when they really want to change and it takes up to three years, to change a culture, mindset of players.

“This is something that is going to take time but we work every single day.”

Kewell has made only limited signings since arriving soon after the end of last season.

Nine of the 12 players he used against Swindon were already at the club when he took over last May.

That figure was just slightly skewed by the absence of left-back Cedric Evina but Kewell praised Aryan Tajbakhsh’s efforts as stand-in.

Kewell believes fans have switched on to the way he is trying to play – helped by that run of five successive home wins which sent them to the brink of the play-off race.

He added: “I live in the town centre and I walk around a lot of the time.

“I see a lot of people and they just enjoy now coming to Crawley and they enjoy the football.

“We have got five games to go.

“We will focus, we will concentrate and we will play the right way.

“If at times we have to go direct, okay – that’s part of the game.”
