Crystal Palace boss Iain Dowie has offered new deals to Darren Powell and Tom Soares.
Dowie is moving to tie down his top stars to long-term deals at Selhurst Park.
Powell's future at Palace looked uncertain earlier in the season when he was loaned out to West Ham, but the big defender has enjoyed a run-out in the side in the last few months.
Young midfielder Soares is highly rated within the corridors of Selhurst Park and is tipped for a big future at the club.
The 18-year-old has firmly established himself in Dowie's plans this season and Palace are hoping to extend his stay at the club.
"Powell is ongoing and we are in discussion with Soares now about his deal too," said Dowie.
"The club's future with these players signing is great."
