Brentford's Danish pair Lasse Vibe and Andreas Bjelland are out of contract in the summer and both parties have a decision to make as to whether they extend their stays at Griffin Park.
The Denmark centre back has been in good form so far this season and has formed a strong partnership with John Egan.
Bjelland will celebrate his 30th birthday in the summer so, from a Brentford perspective, they are unlikely to be offering a long-term deal.
From the player's perspective, it is the last realistic chance to have a deal that can set up up for his post-playing career and, given his young family, the length of contract could also be a major factor in deciding his future.
Vibe, on the other hand, has been hampered by injury and is yet to get off the mark this season although he reached double figures in each of his past two seasons and there is every chance he will achieve that again this season.
The Dane will be 31 in February so, much like Bjelland, it is unlikely the club would offer him more than one year, although I can see both being offered a year with an optional second.
How Denmark fare in the Republic of Ireland tomorrow will have an impact as well. For example, if they were to qualify the pair could, in theory, go to the World Cup as impending free agents and, were they to shine, could earn themselves a better deal than one the Bees could offer.
Now, as seasoned Brentford observers will know, it is prudent to see which players are out of contract in 2019 given the club's policy of cashing in on a player if a new deal can't be agreed.
At the top of that list is Brentford head coach Dean Smith and, given the furore over Arsene Wenger last year, the Bees will look to make a decision sooner or later. For me, he's worthy of an extension and probably a rolling contract, rather than going one year at a time.
Lewis Macleod, Alan Judge and Josh McEachran have all had injury issues that have limited their time on the pitch so question marks will be hanging over them until they have an extended run in the side. Jack Bonham is out on loan at Carlisle this season and it remains to be seen what his future holds.
The priority, based on current form, should be Josh Clarke, who has shone on both flanks this season, in midfield and in defence as well as Yoann Barbet. Both players are young and developing so will be seen as potential targets for other clubs.
Florian Jozefzoon is another player in good form and it would not be a surprise to see the club looking to extend his stay at Griffin Park.
Konstantin Kerschbaumer's contract expires in 2019 as well but the Bees have an option on him for the 2019/20 season.
