Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson says he will sit down with those players out of contract this summer when the time is right.
Whilst Doncaster look almost certain to be playing League One football next season after winning their last two games to ease their relegation worries, Ferguson is still not ready to sit down with the players out of contract this summer.
Doncaster still face eight games in the final four weeks of the season, meaning a hectic finish to the season and Ferguson says he will sit down with the players individually when he feels the time is right.
“Nothing will happen until I decide it is the right time,” Ferguson told BBC Radio Sheffield.
“At the moment, it isn`t the right time.
“When I do decide it is the right time, I will sit down and have the conversations with each of the individuals and we will go from there.”
Doncaster Rovers stalwart James Coppinger is amongst those players out of contract this summer. The clubs leading appearance maker, in his 14th season with the club, has earned rave reviews from his manager in recent weeks.
Craig Alcock, Mathieu Baudry and Andy Williams, who are all currently in the first team squad are also out of contract this summer.
Cedric Evina, who has spent the season on loan at Crawley Town, is also out of contract.
Ferguson will name his retained and released list at the end of the season as he plans for next season.
The Doncaster boss has already said that he is interested in bringing on-loan Burnley defender Tom Anderson to the Keepmoat Stadium next season having had preliminary talks with Clarets boss Sean Dyche.
