Paul Cook is assembling his squad for next season but will play the waiting game on two of his star players.
Both Bobby Grant and Padraig Amond have been an integral part of Cook’s short reign and both admit their time at Accrington this season ‘has put a smile on their faces’.
But with both on loan, any deals on the table this summer will be dependent on their parents clubs.
Grant – whose initial month’s loan spell runs out after tomorrow’s game at Cheltenham although he wants to extend it until the end of the season – admitted coming back to Stanley from Scunthorpe had been a huge boost for him.
"I have enjoyed it, I have loved coming back and I think you can see that in the way I play," said Grant, who came through the ranks at Accrington before his move to the then-Championship club in 2010.
"It’s really exciting and the gaffer and Leam (Richardson) have given me a free rein and it’s been like a breath of fresh air for me and I have been scoring goals.
"I obviously left Accrington for Scunthorpe when Nigel Adkins was in charge.
"There was a change and I was scoring goals but I wasn’t happy there, I was finding it difficult away from home.
"I spoke to Leam about coming back to Accrington for me to do them a favour but also to do myself a favour and get a few goals and it was great to get back to my roots.
"I have got a massive smile back on my face and, as soon as I came back, I felt wanted – the management wanted me, the fans were behind me and so were the players.
"For me, my future is up in the air though. Scunthorpe have a year’s option on me so it’s down to them.
"If they want me to stay there then I will, it’s just that I will have to wait and see."
If Scunthorpe do let Grant go, Accrington could face a battle with former Reds boss John Coleman at Rochdale.
League One’s bottom club were said to be interested in Grant in March but the Iron wouldn’t let him move to a club battling in the same division.
Grant wasn’t looking so far ahead: "I don’t know what will happen in the summer, it’s down to Scunthorpe.
"All I can say is that I want to stay here until the end of the season, I will focus on scoring more goals in the next four games for Accrington and then see what happens."
Amond, who scored the winner in Monday’s 2-1 victory over Hereford, is in a similar situation as he has a year left on his contract at Portuguese club Pacos De Ferreira.
"It’s not down to me, it’s down to Pacos but all I can say is how happy I am here at Accrington," said the 23-year-old, who is the Reds’ top scorer with nine goals.
"John (Coleman) and Jimmy (Bell) gave me my chance here and I am loving playing up front under the new gaffer and, like Bobby, I am playing with a huge smile on my face. The gaffer (Paul Cook) knows my strengths and weaknesses from being at Sligo with me and I have enjoyed it on and off the pitch.
"In Portugal it was hard as I couldn’t speak the language and I could sit in meetings for hours, not knowing what was being said.
"I didn’t play as much as I would have liked and so, while it was a great experience, it was also tough.
"But they are my club and I expect to go back there in pre-season in July and then take it from there.
"It is out of my hands as, if they want me to stay, I am contracted to them and I will do my best for them.
"But if they do let me go, I only want to come to Accrington."
