Chairman Huw Jenkins has told Real Radio that both Jason Scotland and Ferrie Bodde have expressed a desire to leave the club.
Burnley have enquired about Jason Scotland while Bolton are interested in midfielder Ferrie Bodde.
Both players want to play in the Premiership next season and new manager Paulo Sousa could lose two of his players this Summer.
When asked by Real Radio if he thinks Scotland and Bodde will still be here for the start of the season, Jenkins said:
'I'd like to say yes, but the truth is it's going to be difficult, in both the players' views and their agents' views, they've expressed a desire to leave for whatever reason.
'No doubt our manager is going to speak to them anyway and we'll see what comes out of that.'
'We've had an enquiry off Burnley (for Jason Scotland), and Bolton Wanderers have enquired about Ferrie Bodde, but it's first objective to get the manager on board, get him working and we'll see what happens over the next couple of weeks.
Jenkins also shared his thoughts on Sousa's appointment, and said he was delighted to unveil him today:
'Yes we are (delighted).'
The main priority over the last few weeks was to settle the club down again and to get all the supporters back on board, excited and looking forward to the new season.
'It was imperative that we did investigate every candidate and to make sure that we picked the right one.'
'It's always vital to keep your best players but there are times when things have to change, and we're not afraid to change things and move on.
We'll do what's right for the club, and we'll see what happens over the next few weeks. Whatever route we go down we're going to be confident that we'll be stronger to start the season than we were when we left.
The chairman also added that the appointments of the backroom staff should also be sorted over the next week or so.
