Fabricio Fuentes is set to follow in the footsteps of Robert Pires and Javi Venta by signing a new deal with Villarreal, according to director Jose Manuel Llaneza.
Pires and Venta put pen-to-paper on contract extensions this week to keep them at El Madrigal until the summer of 2010.
Llaneza has now explained that they were offered new deals because they had impressed once again this season.
"They have shown on the pitch that they deserve to spend another year with us," he is quoted as saying in Marca.
"It has been very easy because when the parties all want the same thing it can be agreed quickly."
Villarreal are now keen to ensure that key defender Fuentes signs an extension, and Llaneza recently travelled out to Argentina to discuss the matter with his agent.
"Things are on the right path with Fabricio," he said. "It is normal because I go to South America quite frequently.
"I went to speak to his agent, but that is something I do often. The difference this time was that I went there when normally the representatives come here."
