FULHAM are set to trigger the one-year option on Martin Jol's contract to keep him at Craven Cottage until 2014.
The Dutchman's deal is due to expire in the summer, but the club are keen to keep the former Spurs boss in west London.
Jol led the Cottagers to a ninth-place finish last season and are eighth this time around, despite losing star players Clint Dempsey, Mousa Dembele, Danny Murphy and Andy Johnson in the transfer window.
He has rebuilt the squad around stellar signing Dimitar Berbatov, while also adding freebies Hugo Rodallega and Mladen Petric to the ranks.
And Fulham have verbally agreed to take up the option on Jol's contract to retain his services for another year.
He said: “There is no discussion because Fulham have got an option on my contract. I’m happy here and I’m happy with what I’m doing.
“Fulham want to activate the extra year and I’m happy for them to do that. We talk to each other every day and maybe a month ago the decision was made. An option is an option and they did that. I’m quite happy here.”
