Freee agent shortstop Derek Jeter wants a better deal than the three-year, $45 million pact tabled by the New York Yankees, but it's reportedly not close to the six-year, $150 million deal that the New York Daily News reported on Friday that Jeter's camp sent the Yankees.

"The recently rumored terms of our contract extension are simply inaccurate," Jeter's agent Casey Close told Yahoo Sports.

The New York Post reported late Friday that Close is asking the Yankees for either four or five year contract at $23 to $24 million a year.

Jeter, 36, is coming off a 10-year, $189 million contract as captain of the Yankees.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated to Jeter last week that the career Yankee was welcome to test the market if he believed he could do better than the three-year deal being offered by New York.

Jeter won the American League Rookie of the Year award in 1996 and has been the Yankees' regular shortstop ever since. His 2010 batting average of .270 paled compared to his career .314 mark, while his on-base and slugging percentages were among the lowest of his career.
