Welsh manager Robert Page is close to signing a new “long-term” deal, according to FAW president Steve Williams.
Page has been in charge of the national team since stepping in for Ryan Giggs – initially on a temporary basis – when the former Manchester United winger was furloughed in November 2020.
Giggs finally resigned as Welsh boss in June this year ahead of an ongoing domestic violence trial. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
After guiding Wales to the last 16 of Euro 2020, Page – who previously served as Giggs’ assistant – led the country to their first World Cup since 1958 and sealed qualification with a memorable play-off win over Ukraine in Cardiff in June.
Williams says he and FAW chief Noel Mooney have had advanced discussions with Page about new terms.
“Noel Mooney and I are working with Rob and his agent on an exciting long-term deal,” Williams told BBC Sport Wales.
“We’re putting the i’s and hitting the t’s and crossing our fingers that we can make an announcement in the coming weeks.”
Wales begin their World Cup campaign against the United States on November 21 before also meeting Iran and England in Group B.
