Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert plans contract talks with three of his senior stars.
Asked about the key trio’s contract situations, Lambert replied: “I had to get the staff sorted out first. That will take its course.
“The main thing is to get the staff together. Once we come back on Monday then things will start to roll.
“I don’t think anybody will go without me saying so. I think the lads are happy here and want to get going again.
“Things like that will happen soon.”
