Watford manager Slavisa Jokanovic has confirmed he would be "very happy" to sign a contract extension at the club.

Jokanovic can lead the Hornets to the Sky Bet Championship title if they beat Sheffield Wednesday this weekend, with promotion to the Premier League already secured.

It has been reported that the Serb, who took over the reins at Vicarage Road in October, will be offered a one-year rolling contract on a salary of £1m a year and Jokanovic would be delighted to put pen to paper on such a proposal.

“We’re going to talk after the game on Saturday – I have a lot of plans for this team and I’m sure Watford are interested in what my plans are,” he said.

“I am very happy here. It’s a great place and this club has given me a great chance. I have tried to give them something back and I would be very happy to be working here next season.”
