Dean Holden is set to stay on as Charlton Athletic manager after agreeing a contract extension.
The 43-year-old replaced Ben Garner in December on a deal until this summer.
The South London Press understands Holden reached agreement over a long-term deal at the start of this week.
The next stage of the process is that it has to be rubber-stamped by the League Managers Association.
It seemed, at time of our paper going to press, that Holden’s new contract could be announced before Charlton’s home game against Accrington Stanley this weekend.
Holden met with chief executive Peter Storrie last week to begin putting down plans for next season, including their pre-season programme.
