Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp insists on-loan trio Robbie Keane, Jamie O'Hara and Alan Hutton still have a future at the club.
Spurs clinched a place in the Premier League's top four on Wednesday and have secured a spot in the final qualifying round for the UEFA Champions League.
It remains to be seen how much the North Londoners will invest in new players during the summer as they try and improve the quality of the squad.
Striker Keane is currently on loan at Celtic and has scored 15 times in 18 appearances for the Hoops, while midfielder O'Hara has put in a number of impressive performances at Portsmouth.
Full-back Hutton has made 10 league starts for Sunderland this term, who are considering a permanent bid, although all three are set to return to White Hart Lane at the end of the current campaign.
Part to play
Redknapp said: "They are only loan players so they will come back.
"They are all good players and hopefully they have a part to play next season."
Meanwhile, assistant manager Joe Jordan believes the club deserve to be playing in the Champions League next year after their victory at Eastlands.
"The players deserve everything," he remarked.
"We've improved our form, especially at home, and the manner we got that fourth spot - going to our biggest rivals (for the position) and actually winning - that proves over the course of the season we deserve that spot.
"We're looking forward to it. Our fans have had a few disappointments over the years and if we can get through hopefully we can get some big names to White Hart Lane."
