MILLWALL plan to offer new contracts to David Forde, Liam Trotter and Shane Lowry in the coming weeks.
The key trio are due to become free agents next June but the Lions are ready to begin negotiating extensions to their deals.
Chairman John Berylson is flying over from Boston to watch Saturday's game against QPR and contract renewals will be high on the board's agenda during his visit.
Rival clubs interested in signing Forde, Trotter or Lowry in the summer will be free to approach them in the New Year, so Den bosses want them tied down as soon as possible.
Chief executive Andy Ambler, who will handle talks, said: "There are two or three players, who are out-of-contract this year, that we need to have discussions with in the lead up to Christmas.
"We always said it wouldn't be until October that we started looking at contracts and which way we wanted to shape the squad, but that cheapativanpriceonline.com will now happen."
Between them, Forde, Trotter and Lowry have made over 450 competitive appearances for the club and manager Steve Lomas believes they are instrumental to his short-term and long-term plans.
Lowry has been in and out of the side this season, primarily because of suspension, but, at 24, the best years of his career are still ahead of him.
Millwall have tried and failed in the past to renew terms with Trotter but Lomas is a huge admirer of the midfielder and is determined to keep him at The Den.
Forde underlined his quality with an outstanding performance for the Republic of Ireland against Germany last week – but his international exploits could attract other suitors.
Lomas said: "We need to get certain key players signed up. Fordey has been very impressive for his country and obviously we want to keep hold of him, but there are a few others as well. Hopefully we will get that ball rolling soon."
