Newly crowned English Premier League Champions Leicester City are reportedly set to offer manager Claudio Ranieri a new long-term contract.
According to the BBC, Vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha will discuss a deal with the 64-year-old Italian, whose deal expires in 2018, this summer.
Srivaddhanaprabha said of a possible new contract for Ranieri: “We will sit down together. It’s not fair to talk now with one game to go.
“At the end of the season we will talk about that with him. When we talk about something, it’s long term, not just until September.
“I like people to work for me when they are happy and enjoy working with the group of people.” Srivaddhanaprabha stated.
Ranieri who was appointed on a three-year contract in July 2015 after Nigel Pearson was sacked led the Foxes to the title win with two matches to spare..
Leicester, who were almost relegated last season, are 10 points clear of second-placed Tottenham with one match remaining this term, having lost only three league games.
Meanwhile reports on Monday had suggested that Italian Football Federation president Carlo Tavecchio wants Ranieri to coach Italy to a World Cup triumph in the future.
