Woods is looking to make additions to his current squad
Grimsby Town manager Neil Woods says the club are in negotiations with midfielder Micky Cummins about extending his stay at Blundell Park.
Cummins, 32, joined The Mariners on a free transfer from Rotherham last summer but is out of contract at the end of this season.
"We're talking and Micky's been outstanding in the last six weeks," Woods told BBC Radio Humberside.
"There's conversations going on with that," he added.
Meanwhile, Woods also said that Michael Leary is still in his plans.
Midfielder Leary, 27, is also out of contract in the summer and has only featured six times this season.
"Michael's frustrated but he trains excellently and is a great kid but at the moment he can't get in the side," said Woods.
"I've no qualms about playing him if we have to. He's in one of those awkward situations where he's great for me to have around but it's frustrating for him."
Following Tuesday's Blue Square Bet Premier defeat to York City, Woods admitted he needs to strengthen his inconsistent side.
"There's an obvious gap in the team at the moment for me. We don't secure the ball well enough.
"We have spent a lot of money so we have to do things sensibly. We've been speaking to people, if they materialise we'll have to wait and see but we've got to the stage where the players we want will probably cost money now."
