Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale is busy making preparations for next term with three potential targets on the horizon.
Tisdale would like to sign George Friend on a permanent deal while Scott Golbourne has already been offered a new contract.
And the League One outfit are thought to be interested in making a move for Rotherham striker Ryan Taylor, who spent time on loan with the Grecians last term.
Regarding Friend, who can play at left-back or left midfield and featured 13 times for the Grecians on loan last term, Tisdale has made no secret of wanting to sign the player after he was released by parent club Wolves.
The Exeter boss told the club's official website: "We would like to have George, we have told him we would like to have him and there is a place here for him.
"He is not going to commit himself until he knows what his options are. There is nothing else to it."
Meanwhile, the City boss is set for talks with defender Golbourne, who has been stalling on a new deal after the club offered him fresh terms six months ago.
Tisdale told the Express & Echo: "Scott has had his offer for a while. You have to repeat that offer to register with the league and that is what we have done.
"I wanted it done last week but he has gone away on holiday.
"It is his choice and he will have to decide what he wants to do.
"I would like to think that he is going to play for us. But it is his choice and it will be governed by what we offer him.
"There is no timescale but we have to be respectful to each other.
"At the end of the day the offer has been made and we will sit down again and see where we go from here."
Meanwhile Taylor has not ruled out a return to the club next season if he is released by Rotherham over the summer.
Taylor told the Express & Echo: "I am waiting to see what is going to happen next season. I enjoyed it down at Exeter. It is a nice place and everyone made me feel really welcome.
"Paul Tisdale was brilliant while I was there and all the players were extremely helpful.
"I am pleased with how it went there. I started the last two games of the season against Hartlepool and Huddersfield and I thought I played well in both of those.
"I like the football that they played - it is something that I am not used to.
"It is a bit different at Rotherham because there is not as much football played in League Two.
"I like getting the ball into feet and it suited my game at Exeter."
