Dundee United boss Peter Houston has confirmed that midfield trio Craig Conway, Morgaro Gomis and Prince Buaben are set to leave the club this summer.
All three players are out of contract at Tannadice and United admit they are not in a position to keep them.
Houston, though, insists he is not angry about their potential exits as they have all given good services to the club.
Winger Conway joined from Ayr United in 2009, Gomis was snapped up from Cowdenbeath in 2007 while Buaben signed from Dutch giants Ajax, also in 2007.
"We know that they're leaving here," said Houston.
"They've indicated from early on they want to move on and try something different.
"Those three guys have done Dundee United good service and, if they go and earn three or four times as much money, good luck to them.
"They go with my best wishes because they've done me a turn."
No deals, yet
Conway has been strongly linked with a summer switch to Rangers, while Gomis and Bauben could be heading to England - despite interest from other SPL clubs.
Conway insists he has not agreed a deal yet to move on.
"I can tell you that a deal definitely has not happened. I'm still playing here and I've not signed anywhere else yet," he said.
"It's maybe just papers speculating and I can understand that because I haven't signed a new deal here but I can honestly say I have not signed a deal anywhere else.
"Every player has got to look at their career. It is a short career and I want to play at the highest level I possibly can. It's the same for any player here with any sort of ambition but we will need to see what happens. I haven't spoken to anybody yet.
"Everybody else has been talking about it more than me."
Gomis confirmed he would be leaving the club.
"I'm going to leave at the end of the season, but I've put that to the back of my mind at the moment," he said.
"I'm focused on helping the team get as many points as we can. I will be sad to leave. Coming to United from Cowdenbeath was the best thing that has happened to my career.
"I just think it's time to try something new. In football, players move on and teams have to get new players to evolve."
