Veteran striker Don Goodman along with Pedro Matias, Ian Brightwell and Matthew Gadsby have all agreed to stay at the Bescot Stadium as Ray Graydon's side aim to stay in the First Division next season.
Saddlers general manager Paul Taylor released the news but said that Gabor Bukran looks to be on his way out of the club.
"I wouldn't say the negotiations have been easy but we are pleased to come to agreement with these players," said Taylor.
"We believe we have the basis of a decent squad who we are now looking to supplement with one or two other bits of business.
"Gaby Bukran said he couldn't go ahead and sign so we will now look elsewhere."
Watford winger Cook has signed a new deal with The Hornets until 2004.
The 18-year-old will miss the start of the new season under Gianluca Vialli after just having surgery on a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Stockport County defender Gibb has handed boss Andy Kilner a further boost by pledging his future to Edgeley Park until 2004.
He joins Mike Flynn, Karim Fradin, Robert Clare and Aaron Wilbraham, who have all pledged their futures to The Hatters.
Elsewhere, West Brom twins James and Adam Chambers are looking for assurances over their involvement in the first-team before signing new deals.
The 20-year-olds have one year left on their current contracts but want Baggies boss Gary Megson to assure them they are in his plans for the future before putting pen-to-paper.
James played 35 times for Albion last season while brother Adam was limited to just five appearances.
