Kilmarnock are in talks with Garry Hay, Manuel Pascali and James Fowler over new deals at Rugby Park.
All three players are key members of Kenny Shiels' side and he is determined to secure their futures.
Shiels revealed they have opened talks with Fowler and Pascali, and that Hay was next in line for negotiations over a new deal with his current contract due to expire at the end of the season.
"We want to get the three senior players - Garry, James and Manuel - tied up as they are the spirit of the club," Shiels told the Daily Record.
"We have already got talks under way with James and Manuel and we'll start talks with Garry later this week."
