Swansea City will tie up three contracts this week as Nathan Dyer and Joe Allen enter the last year of their current deals.
Thomas Butler will also be given a chance to shine under Brendan Rodgers following his recovery from a thigh injury that kept him out last season.
Butler, who already has Premier League experience with Sunderland, will get his opportunity this year and Rodgers is happy to give him that chance:
'Tommy has been offered another year's deal and he will sign this week,' commented Rodgers.
'I felt it was only fair to Tommy because his contract was up and I haven't seen him play since I came to the club.
'He's actually one of the few players to have played in the Premier League, so I felt it was a fair to give him an opportunity and chance.
'He knows he has a lot of work to do in terms of his fitness we will review it from there.'
Fans player of the year last year Nathan Dyer confirms his representatives are currently in talks over a new deal at the Liberty and as long as the deal is right, he would love to sign an extension:
'The club is talking to my representatives at the moment,'' confirmed Dyer, 23. 'If the deal is right for me then I'd love to sign a new contract - there's no doubt about that.
'My career has really developed here at Swansea and the manager (Brendan Rodgers) has really helped me a lot.
'I want to keep pushing myself and hope my ability will cause a few problems in the Premier League.
'It's a dream come true for me to play in the Premier League and, to be honest, it still hasn't really sunk in yet; it doesn't feel quite right.
'It hasn't hit us yet. I'm sure when we play Manchester City it will smack us in the face.
'But there is a good squad here at Swansea and we are all looking forward to it.''
The 21 year old starlet Joe Allen also confirms he is close to a new deal at the club where he has spent the last 12 years:
'We are close to an agreement,'' confirmed Allen. 'There are a couple of little things that need sorting, but hopefully everything will be sorted soon.''
