Rayo Vallecano are reportedly beginning contract extension talks with Coach Paco Jemez today.
Jemez has impressed with the Madrid minnows in his debut season in La Liga, and currently has the team in eighth place in the standings and within contention for European qualification.
Even so, Jemez has remained along with 14 first team players and the club’s sporting director Felipe Minambres as on a contract expiring in June.
However, with the team’s League status for another season virtually now secured, the club are reportedly beginning preparations for next term.
Priorities are seen as securing Minambres and Jemez to new deals, with talks with the Coach’s agnet Daniel Munoz set to be opened today.
It is seen that, economic factors aside, which include a rumoured increased salary offered, Jemez is seeking assurances on the sporting direction of the club for next term, including which players will be staying at Vallecas beyond the summer.
One option set to be allegedly considered by all parties would be handing Jemez a two-year contract, but with a clause to release him should a bigger club come in for his services.
