Jonathan Davies: Starred for the British and Irish Lions in Australia
Scarlets attack coach Mark Jones says the club will do everything they can to hold onto their home-grown stars.
George North left the club for Northampton Saints earlier this summer but the Scarlets still boast a number of international stars.
Lions centre Jonathan Davies remains at Parc y Scarlets as does his Wales teammates Rhys Priestland, Scott and Liam Williams, Rob McCusker and Aaron Shingler.
Jones says the Scarlets have no intention of letting those players leave and are keen to begin talks about extending some of their contracts.
"We want to keep hold of all of our Welsh international players," said Jones.
"You are looking at three individuals, Rhys Priestland, Jon Davies and Scott Williams, who would be perhaps household names with the Wales squad.
"We definitely want to keep those players within the region and I am sure talks will start imminently about extending those gentlemen's contracts with this region.
"They have come through the system, they are the perfect example to the next crop of youngsters about what you can achieve and where you can achieve it.
"We want those players to be putting that Scarlet jersey on for a number of years yet."
