Leicester Tigers will begin crunch talks with fly-half George Ford and lock Geoff Parling in the coming weeks to decide their future.
Ford was said to have signed with Bath Rugby next season according to an article in the Daily Mail on Sunday, whilst Parling has been linked with Gloucester as a replacement for France-bound Jim Hamilton.
Ford - the 2011 IRB Junior Player of the Year - has struggled for opportunities behind England fly-half Toby Flood and would link up with his father Mike, Bath's defence coach, if he were to move to The Rec.
Having signed lock Sebastian de Chaves from Mont-de-Marsan according to a tweet from the player over the weekend, rumours of Parling's exit have continued to spread.
"George Ford is a player who has been at this club for all of his short professional career to date and we think he is a player with lots of potential," said CEO Simon Cohen to the Leicester Mercury.
"We would like him to stay. We have met regularly with him and his agent but we are getting closer to a time where a decision needs to be made in order that we can plan for next season."
"We would like Geoff to stay. We have made what we think is a very good offer and he knows that he will be very well looked after here if he has any further injury problems.
"This is also the best place for him to be to continue his England career.
"He will need to weigh that up against any offer that is financially better.
"Although we don't want to put any pressure on him to make a decision just yet, there will be a point at which we need to know in order to plan."
