QPR are ready to offer new deals to both Damion Stewart and Mikele Leigertwood that keeps the pair at the club until 2012.
The Rangers duo have been coveted by a host of clubs this summer, with the loudest noises coming from Wolves for Leigertwood and Spurs and Newcastle in Jamaican international Stewart.
Both have only a year left on their contracts, which in effect would be reduced to six months if nothing was sorted by January when the players essentially become free agents.
Wolves were prepared to pay the same near £1million fee for Leigertwood that Rs paid Sheffield United in August 2007 - but boss Jim Magilton doesn't want either player to leave.
An insider said: "Of course the club doesn't want the double problem of either losing top players in the middle of the season or the transfer fees that go with valuable assets walking out the door for nothing."
Leigertwood missed out on last night's friendly at Wycombe with a thigh strain, with identical injuries to Akos Buzsaky and new boy Alejandro Faurlin ruling them out of the friendly at Adams Park.
It's the last of the three that worries the manager most, despite labelling the niggles as only 'minor'.
Argentinian Alejandro Faurlin, who cost Rangers £3.5m a month ago, is understood to have a tear at the top of his thigh, and will under-go a scan in the next 24 hours.
Magilton will almost certainly rule the other two out of the only pre-season match at Loftus Road on Saturday as well when Rs take on newly-relegated Southampton.
Meanwhile, Martin Rowlands has been named captain for next season despite missing most of the last campaign through injury.
Magilton reckoned it was an easy decision to give the armband to the Republic of Ireland international - but also hinted that he might not be ready to wear it while he makes his way back to full match fitness.
He said: "If Martin isn't around for whatever reason, I know I can rely on other players to step forward and take the armband on, but Martin was the unanimous choice of the entire coaching staff."
