Alex have already finalised their retained list and manager Dario Gradi confirmed that the club were now looking at which players they will offer new deals to.
"Everyone who we want to release has been told already because we don't believe in shocks," Gradi told the club's official website.
"That is not the way we run our football club and the players who are now out of contract know that we will be making them an offer once the season ends.
"We will talk to those players in due course and that that includes Dave Brammer.
"He knows that we would like to keep him here and we will offer him the best contract we can.
"The chairman is just finalising the amount we can offer him and then it is up to him if he wants to accept it or not.
"We have always been a club that offers the best contract we can and there is never too much room for negotiation. We can only pay what we can afford."
One player who will not be staying on is number two goalkeeper Ademole Bankole.
"He has been very good to us over the years," said Gradi.
He is joined by Irish striker Eamon Zayed, who has ended his loan spell with The Railwaymen after failing to make a first team breakthrough with Gradi's side.
