Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez is preparing to open talks with five members of his squad over their futures at the Liberty Stadium. Dorus de Vries, Matty Collins, Dennis Lawrence, Kristian O'Leary and Andrea Orlandi are all out of contract this summer and Martinez is keen to resolve their futures before the January transfer window opens. "All their situations are important to me," Martinez told the Evening Post. "I don't like to leave players not knowing what's happening and I will be reviewing every one in December. "I always like to see where the players are prior to the transfer window before the summer when contracts are up. "I don't like players not knowing where they will be and I'll sit down with each one of them before January. "That doesn't mean they are all going to get new contracts, but we need to discuss what's best for each player and for the club."
