Cape Town - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has moved to end any uncertainty over his future after revealing he is close to extending his contract by two years.
If the contract negotiations go according to plan, the Argentine tactician will be tied to the club until 2012.
Pochettino made the revelation in his pre-match press conference on Friday, saying he had verbally agreed a two-year extension with the club ahead of the off-season break.
He revealed: "It was an easy decision when you feel the love of the people and the potential of the club is massive, so why change?
"We create a good atmosphere on the training ground and I think we can achieve big things in the future.
"I believe in this project and this club. I want to stay here."
The news will undoubtedly be welcomed by the club's players and supporters, who would have been concerned after Pochettino recently revealed he would one day like to manage former club Paris Saint-Germain.
Spurs currently occupy second place in the Premier League standings and trail leaders Leicester City by seven points with just three games remaining. Pochettino's men face Chelsea on Monday night, and Leicester will look to have the title wrapped up on Sunday when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
