Koeman talks progressing well

Dutchman keen to stay at Saints

Ronald Koeman's talks over a new Southampton contract are progressing well, according to executive director of football Les Reed.

Koeman has completed two years of the three-year contract he signed when he took over from Mauricio Pochettino in the summer of 2014.

The Saints have fared well under the Dutchman, breaking their Premier League record points tally in successive seasons, and a sixth-place finish means they have Europa League football to look forward to next year.

Koeman has indicated his desire to remain at St Mary's and he has spoken to the club about a new contract with Reed pleased with how negotiations are progressing.

"Talks are ongoing all the time, and there is never really a point where you can say ‘on this day we’ll starting talking’," Reed told the club's YouTube channel.

"Conversations go on all the time about planning for the future. Ronald has mentioned recently that he’s sat down with us at board level and talked about the five-year plan.

"There’s no point going into contract negotiations about finance and money unless you’re all on the same wavelength about where the club is going.

"If Ronald is committing himself to the club for a longer period of time, it’s important we talk about our ambitions being aligned and that we are still trying to achieve the same things.

"We’re now at a point, as Ronald has said himself, where we’re actually getting down to the detail of the contract, which is where agents and lawyers get involved.

"Everything is going very positively at the moment."
