Crystal Palace are eager to secure Gary Cahill to a new deal.
The former England star, 35, was one of TEN Eagles stars out of contract this summer.
The Sun says it is understood new manager Patrick Vieira wants to keep former Chelsea defender Cahill.
Right-back Joel Ward, 31, is also expected to be kept, particularly with Nathan Ferguson set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines.
The South London club have been training at St George's Park and free agent Nathaniel Clyne is still with them, though it remains to be seen if he will be retained.
