NATIONWIDE Conference leaders Chester City are to open contract talks with four members of their squad, whose agreements run out at the end of this season.
Goalkeeper Wayne Brown, defenders Carl Ruffer and Scott Guyett and striker Michael Twiss are all out of contract next June, so the club are keen to ensure continuity by offering them new deals.
City chairman Stephen Vaughan said: "All four of the players have done well for us during their spells with the club. We have had preliminary discussions with three of them, and we will take those negotiations further.
"We have a good squad here and we would naturally like to keep it together."
