Stephen Quinn has reiterated his desire to remain at Sheffield United but will not be rushed into making a decision on a new contract.
The Blades midfielder still has one year to run on his current deal but the Championship club are keen to tie him down for longer.
The 24-year-old, who has come up through the youth ranks at Bramall Lane, was offered new terms along with defender Gary Naysmith, midfielder Nick Montgomery and striker Richard Cresswell.
Quinn featured in all but two Championship games last season as Kevin Blackwell's side just missed out on the play-offs and the former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international form was rumoured to have attracted admiring glances from Swansea.
"Talks are going okay at the moment and the club have offered me a new contract, so I'm going to sit down with my family and agent and discuss it with them before coming to a decision," he told skysports.com.
"I'd like to stay at Sheffield United because all my family are here and I've been at the club for seven years now, so I know it inside out.
"I've had some good times here and I want to bring the good times back to this club because the fans deserve to be watching Premier League football."
Despite wanting to sit down with his family to discuss the contract Quinn hopes to have his future sorted by the start of the season.
"I've got another year left, but I'd like to get things sorted as soon as possible so that I can solely focus on football," he added.
"I'd like to get my future resolved here, but if not then I will obviously have to look elsewhere because I'd like my future to be secure going into next season."
