The futures of several MK Dons players will be made clearer before the weekend.
Six players - Stephen Gleeson, Izale McLeod, Alan Smith, Antony Kay, Ryan Hall and Mark Randall - are out of contract at the end of the season, but the club must announce the list of players they will retain next season by Saturday.
Dons boss Karl Robinson is believed to have offered new contracts to two of the list - likely to be Gleeson and Kay - and is waiting to hear back from them before making a formal announcement.
Robinson said: “We’re in talks again this week, with one or two.
“We have until the weekend (to announce who Dons are retaining) and we’ll announce it officially.”
