Hartson has voiced concerns over his contract situation at Parkhead with his current deal due to expire in the summer.
O'Neill is keen to keep the Welsh international and is planning talks over a new deal for Hartson as well as Neil Lennon, Bobo Balde, Jackie McNamara and Robert Douglas.
"I will be discussing things with his (Hartson's) agent in the next few days," said O'Neill.
"Players want to know what's happening, but these things can drag on.
"Neil Lennon is possibly different to others in that he might not be bothered about this (the lateness of contract negotiations).
"But we will be speaking to his agent as well and Bobo's when he comes back from international duty (with Guinea). We want it sorted out as soon as possible.
"Jackie McNamara and Robert Douglas are in the same position, so we will be speaking to them as well in the coming weeks."
