MILWAUKEE (AP) - Prince Fielder says there's no urgency in negotiating for a new contract and that he wants to stay in Milwaukee as long as possible.

Fielder has a year left on an $18.5 million, two-year deal signed last season and the Brewers still hold his rights through the 2011 season.

After that, he could join a crowded class of free-agent first basemen that may include St. Louis' Albert Pujols, Philadelphia's Ryan Howard and San Diego's Adrian Gonzalez.

But the 25-year-old Fielder says he wants to play out his current deal before focusing on the future. He says what's most important is that he loves Milwaukee and his family is happy.

Fielder hit .299 with 46 homers and tied for the major-league lead with 141 RBIs last season.
