Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has revealed he is close to agreeing a new contract extension at Craven Cottage.
The experienced manager saved the club from relegation after being appointed in December 2007 and has also been praised for his astute business in the transfer market.
Last season Hodgson guided The Cottagers to their highest-ever Premier League finish in seventh place, qualifying for the Europa League.
The West London outfit have coped impressively with their European ambitions and domestic priorities this season, prompting owner Mohamed Al-Fayed to open contract negotiations. "It's something that has been discussed over a period of time," Hodgson told Sky Sports following Sunday's 1-1 Premier League draw with Wigan Athletic.
"The club have been keen to organise a contract for me to stay longer and I am not averse to the idea.
"I hope something will be sorted out in the near future because they are keen to get something done."
The 62-year-old has over 30 years of managerial experience and is noted for his time with Blackburn Rovers and Inter Milan, as well as leading Switzerland to the 1994 World Cup.
Hodgson was recently linked to the Sweden national side job but now looks set to remain in West London for the foreseeable future.
