We've spoken to their agents and have put the deals to them and are waiting on some replies."We're a long, long way down the line now, in keeping with the original plan in the summer of bringing new faces in and then working on our current player contract talks. It illustrates that we've come a long way in a very short space of time. The fans have to be overjoyed that we've kept the players we wanted to keep, which shows the division a signal of our intent."
