Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka believes more Sky Blues players will follow Terry McFlynn’s lead and commit their future to the club.
Midfielder McFlynn signed a three-year deal this week and Lavicka expects more signings in the coming months.
"It's hard to say in this moment, it's a process," Lavicka said. "I'm happy in this moment that Terry has re-signed and I think we will continue (to secure players over) the next few weeks and months."
Key players including John Aloisi, Stephan Keller, Karol Kisel, Simon Colosimo, Stuart Musialik, Clint Bolton and Steve Corica are all out of contract after this season but from what McFlynn says, they will all be keen to pledge their future to what has become a tight-knit squad.
“We're getting things together now on the park and I think it's important to keep the squad together," McFlynn said.
"You just have to watch us train to see that everyone gets along with everyone, we're really best friends on and off the park and I think that shows in how we play.
"We'll go that extra yard for each other and it'd be great if we can keep the whole squad together."
