Felix Magath will hold talks with his out-of-contract players in the next few days as he shapes his Fulham squad for next season.

Steve Sidwell, John Heitinga, John Arne Riise, Damien Duff and Mahamadou Diarra are among those who see their current deals expire at the end of the campaign.

Magath is keen to retain top scorer Sidwell, while Riise has pledged to stay at Craven Cottage despite relegation to the Championship.            

But with the Whites chief promising an injection of youth next season, Magath may decide to let go some of the more experienced members of his squad.

Out of contract: Mahamadou Diarra's deal expires in the summer

He said: “For me it was not a question until last weekend because it was more important to think about the end of the season, so I didn’t make up my mind.

“The team have contracts and now we have to speak to the players which want to stay and have contracts.

"So we have to find out which ones will be here and which ones will leave us but it will happen in the next days.”
