I have a tenant who wants to sign a new one year contract, with a six month break clause. I wish him to give me two months notice if he wants to exercise the break and leave after six months.

Is it legal for me to ask for two months notice?

If he does not leave at the break point, and he gives notice to leave after, say, eight months, does paragraph B9 in your Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (If you give us notice that you are going to leave the property before this agreement has ended, you must pay our reasonable costs for reletting the property as well as paying the rent until a new tenant moves in) apply? I would like it to do so. He wants to be able to leave during the second six months without being responsible for payment for reletting or for the rent until a new tenant moves in.
