Lincoln City chairman Steff Wright is confident midfielder Lee Frecklington will sign a new deal at Sincil Bank.
The 22-year-old has attracted interest from a number of clubs, including Darren Ferguson's Peterborough United in January.
However, talks are currently under way at Lincoln between the club, Frecklington and his agent, with Wright keen on sealing a deal as soon as possible.
"Negotiations with Lee are progressing very well indeed and everything has been extremely positive," Wright told the Lincolnshire Echo.
"We have always spoken about how we want Lee to stay with us because we understand and recognise what an exceptional talent he is.
"He has said he would like to stay here as well and I'm pleased with how the current situation is developing.
"We don't want our best players to leave and are committed to ensuring it doesn't happen."
