Former Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock is set to remain as English Championship side, Middlesbrough's boss next season according to BBC Sport reports.
Warnock who came to replace former player Jonathan Woodgate managed to inspire the side to a 17th finish on Sky Bet Championship standings, narrowly avoiding relegation.
"I've really enjoyed myself since I've come up here," Warnock told the club's official website.
"The people in the area have made me and my family really welcome.
"It's been hard work, make no mistake. But this is a great club and I'd like to take it towards the other end of the table.
"I just felt it was the right thing to do; to continue to shape the squad and take it forward. That's what I'm going to try to do.
"I must have retired about five times now, but there's always something that's brought me back; a challenge, helping somebody out, and this is a similar situation."
