Swindon Town are resisting approaches for three of their key men.
Sammy Igoe has been targeted by Brentford and Rotherham United, keeper Rhys Evans is interesting Leeds United and top scorer Sam Parkin has drawn an enquiry from Crewe Alexandra.
"There has been some interest and Brentford have been in touch," midfielder Igoe told The Evening Advertiser.
"I think a two-year deal was being talked about.
"I've [also] spoken to Mick [Harford] although he understood about the fact that it would be a big decision to uproot the family."
Swindon director Sandy Gray has been in discussions with Igoe and Evans and is hopeful both will stay at The County Ground.
"I'm told that there has been interest from Leeds United as well but I'd like to think that Rhys will choose to stay with us," stated Gray.
Meanwhile, Crewe boss Dario Gradi is threatening to end his interest in Robins striker Parkin.
"From where we stand, the Parkin deal looks dead," said the Alex manager.
"I did speak to Andy King and he told me straight out that he didn't want to sell him and that is as far as it went."
