Brentford manager Nicky Forster is confident the club will be able to keep hold of Robbie Neilson, Adam Reed and Nathan Byrne for another month.
Their loan spells are set to expire this week, but Forster is confident of negotiating extensions for all three.
"We've applied to each of their clubs to ask if they can stay for another month. We're waiting to hear back, but I'm sure it won't be a problem," he told the Ealing Gazette.
"They've signalled that they would like to stay. They're enjoying playing and have got a buzz for the place."
