Plymouth Argyle chairman James Brent expects John Sheridan to sign a new deal as manager of the League Two side, reports BBC
Former Oldham and Chesterfield manager, John Sheridan, agreed a deal until the end of the season when he was appointed in January after Carl Fletcher was sacked with the club in the relegation places.
“We are keen to retain John Sheridan,” Brent told BBC Radio Devon. “John has indicated that he is happy at the club and we will try and reach an agreement with him over the next few days.”
The former Leeds United and Sheff Wednesday midfielder had a successful career at the top level of English football over a 23-year period.
Sheridan played over 730 games at club level, and won 34 caps for the Republic of Ireland.
The club has not discussed any new contracts with players while they were fighting relegation, but Brent said he would now talk about the future of the squad when he meets with Sheridan.
Brent continued: “John’s got a view on that and that’s one of the things I’ll clearly be talking to him about over the next few days.
“He’s clearly formed a view as to how he sees the team shaping up next season in terms of both current players and prospective signings.
“One of the things that John Sheridan’s brought to the team is that a draw is not acceptable, that a win is acceptable – and nothing else.”
James Brent took over the club in October 2011 after it went into administration, and believes the change in mentality Sheridan has brought to the squad was the main reason Argyle clung onto their Football League place.
