Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits that keeping midfielder David Vaughan is one of his top priorities.
The 27-year-old Welsh international has been one of Blackpool's star performers this season, but his current deal is set to expire in the summer.
As yet talks have failed to come up with a deal for Vaughan, who could leave for nothing at the end of the season.
"We need to try to get David to stay because he is a super little player who has been brilliant for me since I came here," admitted Holloway.
"I am amazed and staggered no one made a call about him during the last month because for me he has been one of the stars of the Premier League.
"So now one of my priorities is trying to persuade him to stay."
Vaughan is not the only player out of contract, as left-back Stephen Crainey and goalkeeper Matt Gilks also see their deals expire in the summer.
"Vaughan is up and around the top earners. We have already made him one very good offer, and he is still thinking about it. The same goes for Stephen Crainey," he said.
"I hope they don't wait too long, because the longer they think about it the more chance my chairman might want to pull the plug, because he takes it quite personally sometimes!
"But I can understand why players in the modern game want to think long and hard about these sorts of things, so I am quite relaxed about it.
"I'm due to have another chat with my chairman about it and we'll take it from there, but I would definitely like to keep them."
