Burnley manager Brian Laws admits that he faces some tough decisions in the near future, with a whole host of players out of contract at Turf Moor at the end of the season.
Brian Jensen, Clarke Carlisle, Steven Caldwell, Christian Kalvenes, Stephen Jordan, Michael Duff, Joey Gudjonsson, Robbie Blake, Steven Thompson and Graham Alexander are among the players whose deals are set to expire, leaving Laws with a lot of soul-searching to do.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph:"Decisions will have to made, so it's something I'll be looking at over the coming weeks.
"I said to the players that if they could leave me alone until the window shut, I'd start looking at them more closely and observing what I think is right for the football club.
"Those that are out of contract will want to know, so I'll be letting them know in the not too distant future.
"And when you're out of contract of course it will motivate you to work harder. No-one's got a divine right to get a contract.
"You've got to work and show that you're the type of player that's going to give everything to the football club. But I have no question about that, because they are good people."
