Bradford City are hoping to fend off interest from afar and tie James Hanson down on fresh terms.
The Bantams are aware that the 22-year-old striker has a host of admirers, but are hoping the offer of an improved contract will help to keep him at Valley Parade.
Hanson scored 13 goals for the club last season, following a move from Guiseley, earning him the player of the year award.
Bradford boss Peter Taylor is understandably keen to retain the services of the youngster and has revealed that he met with the player's agent on Monday to talk terms.
"That's hopefully happening very soon," he said on the prospect of thrashing out a deal.
"We hope James will be fit and well for next season and carry on playing for us as well as he has done."
Hanson missed the final seven games of the 2009/10 campaign after pulling a hamstring at Bournemouth in April.
Taylor added: "For a while we were a little bit nervous because it didn't seem to be clearing up, but the last scan we saw looked OK."
