Sean Clohessy, Gavin Tomlin, Luke Prosser and Michael Timlin have all been offered extensions to their contracts, all of which are due to expire at the end of June.

"Offers have been made to Sean, Gavin, Luke and Michael but they will be discussing everything with their representatives at the moment I expect," Brown told the Southend Echo.

"They will be putting it about that they've been offered new deals and it's really a game of cards at the moment, but we're sitting down with some very good players discussing their futures here at the club", he added.

Tomlin finished last term as the club's joint top scorer with 16 goals while right-back Clohessy was voted player of the year by the supporters having made 59 appearances in one season for the Shrimpers - a club record.
