Northampton Town manager Jon Brady says the Cobblers have already spoken to Lloyd Jones and Ryan Watson at great length as the duo have new contract offers on the table.
“We have already spoken at length to both players and hopefully we will get a response in the next few weeks," he said.
“Lloyd has been excellent for us and I gave him the captain’s armband at Sunderland which shows the value we place on him here.
“We’ve made him a much improved offer and I feel another season of progression here would be perfect for him at this stage of his career.
“Ryan is another player I feel we can continue to develop, he had only scored one goal this season before we took over and since then he has scored eight goals in three months.
“He has had a big impact in the last few months and I feel like with Lloyd he could continue his progression with us here next season."
Scott Pollock is another player who has been offered a new contract, having missed the entire 2020/21 season through injury.
“It’s been a tough road for Scott this season," said Brady.
“It was a really innocuous injury that Scott had but he has been really positive throughout and he is fully fit again now.
“Scott came to me from the Football & Education Programme and he is a great example of the player pathway at the football club.
“He’s a special talent and that talent doesn’t go away when you are injured.
“I hope during his time out he’s been visualising how he needs to play and what he needs to do.
“He’s a good footballer but he can mix it up as well and he will be a hell of an addition to our squad.
“We have invited both Morgan Roberts and Alex Jones back for pre-season, I believe Morgan can get in our side and Alex needs a good pre-season under his belt so they are welcome to come back in and we will see where we go."
