Coventry City manager Micky Adams is hopeful that two of the club's best teenage prospects will opt to continue their education with the Sky Blues.
Isaac Osbourne and Craig Reid are among ten players out of contract at Coventry this summer but the midfielder and the striker have been offered new deals with the club and Adams expects the pair to agree terms.
He said: "They have got agents, just like the senior players, but both boys will be talking to the club."
Adams also revealed that former Coventry forward Noel Whelan had asked to return for pre- season training.
The 31-year-old is a free agent after being released by Aberdeen and wants to return to the club where he played for five years following a £2 million transfer from Leeds United in December 1995.
"Noel's agent approached us," Adams said. "I'll sit down and think about it, but it's that crazy time of year when you have agents on the phone to you every day. If you took in everybody who wants to come, you'd have a squad of about 50."
Celtic supporters will expect Gordon Strachan to win the Scottish Premier League title and embark on a good European run in his first season in charge, says Peter Rafferty, secretary of the Affiliation of Celtic Supporters' Associations.
He believes the former Coventry City and Southampton boss is the perfect replacement for Martin O'Neill, who has stepped down to care of his sick wife, Geraldine. Rafferty said: "We believe he is the right man to replace Martin O'Neill and, even though the fans are patient people, they will expect him to win the championship next season."
