Sheffield United are waiting to hear whether first-team players Nick Montgomery, Stephen Quinn, Gary Naysmith and Richard Cresswell have accepted new contract offers.
Montgomery, whose current contract expires this summer, has been linked with moves to QPR and Leeds, while midfield partner Quinn, who still has another year to run, is still in talks with the club. Scotland international Naysmith and striker Cresswell are both pondering their new deals.
Blades chief executive Trevor Birch said: "We have put an improved offer to Nick Montgomery and are waiting on his response, while negotiations with Stephen Quinn continue following an offer we have made him.
"Gary Naysmith is considering the new deal on the table here and we're quietly confident that Richard Cresswell will agree to sign his extended contract offer."
