Steve Cotterill says he would be delighted if Pompey offered him a contract extension. And speaking days after he was rumoured to be a target for Wigan, he said he was enjoying life at Fratton - not least because of the club's fervent fans.

The manager is gearing up for the vital trip to Reading amid speculation that Pompey will soon open talks to extend his deal. But he said he would keep things close to his chest where contract details were concerned.


He told The News: ‘I’m happy at Portsmouth. It’s a very good club that could get better with a little bit of investment and the support we have is fantastic. If the club do want to offer me another contract that would be great. If they don’t then they don’t – there’s not a lot I can do about that.

‘Nothing has changed in my working environment from when I got to the meet all the players on the first day of pre-season. I think having the right staff around you is vitally important, as well as a really good set of players. Then to hear we have sold almost 4,000 tickets for Reading – it’s fantastic.

‘One thing is for sure – you will only hear those 4,000 fans on Saturday. It’s a good club and I’m really enjoying it here.’

He added: ‘I was surprised to read these stories about contracts, I am not quite sure where that has come from. One thing for sure, anything like that I don’t tell anybody. I keep my cards close to my chest on things like that.

‘I don’t know if it is true that they want to offer me a new deal, it might be somebody else that can answer that question. Personally, all you ever want is to look after everyone and in return you hope they look after me.'
