Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that he will still be in charge of Leeds for their return to the Premier League in the 2020/21 season.
The Argentine took over Leeds in the summer of June 2018 and signed a two-year deal with the option of a third.
However, there has never been any concrete speculation that he would leave the club before they embarked on their first top-flight campaign since being relegated 16 years ago.
Speaking ahead of the Liverpool game this weekend, he suggested the new deal is close to being finalised.
"I will be working the next season at Leeds United," Bielsa confirmed.
"Everything has been sorted and it is definite that I will be here next season."
Looking ahead to the game against the defending champions, Bielsa suggested it would be a "special game" as Leeds travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.
"They are one of the best teams in the world, with a fine system and very good players," said the Argentine
"It's difficult to say how our players are going to adjust to the Premier League. We have prepared for this, but we need to show it on the pitch."
