Kilmarnock are ready to reward Graeme Smith and Ryan O'Leary with new contracts.
Smith has established himself as the club's first-choice keeper this season, but his current deal expires at the end of the campaign.
O'Leary, meanwhile, still has two years left on his contract, but Killie boss Jim Jefferies is eager to resolve the futures of the duo.
"We agreed with Ryan that his contact would be reviewed when he made his first-team debut and that's what we're doing," Jefferies told the Daily Record.
"I've spoken with Graeme Smith's agent as well because he's one of four players we have who are out of contract at the end of the season."
But while O'Leary and Smith could stay at Rugby Park, midfielder Peter Leven has revealed he may have to leave the club.
Leven said: "Killie are a good club and I enjoy it here, but if I don't get offered a new deal I'll have to look elsewhere.
"I want to be a regular in the first team which isn't the case at the moment.
"We're doing well this season, but I've got to look after myself."
