JASON Tindall says deciding on the futures of three of Cherries' stalwarts is a "priority" for him this week.

Long-serving trio Simon Francis, Charlie Daniels and Andrew Surman are all currently free agents after their Cherries contracts expired at the end of the season earlier this month.

Due to a combination of injury and selection, the three started just 14 league games between them in the last campaign.

Asked if he has spoken with the any of the trio yet, Tindall told the Daily Echo: "No, that's on the to-do list.

"This week I'll be meeting with those guys and discussing things moving forward.

"Three great players for the football club and that's right on my priority list to do."
