Hanshin Tigers want to keep Matt Murton

The Hanshin Tigers plan on approaching Matt Murton during the season (a measure they usually don't take with foreign players) in an attempt to persuade him to stay.  While the Tigers aren't worried about Murton moving on to another NPB team (it seems there's a clause in Murton's contract that prevents him from doing so for what appears to be at least one year), they are concerned about him leaving for the Majors.
