Aguirre set to sign new Espanyol deal

Espanyol will hold talks with Coach Javier Aguirre this week with the hope of tying the Mexican to a long-term contract.

The 54-year-old was drafted in at the turn of the year following Mauricio Pochettino's dismissal, and has since guided the Periquitos to 11th in the League.

Negotiations have been ongoing since the team's safety was assured, but there has been no agreement thus far.

However, Mundo Deportivo have revealed that the tactician should sign a new deal before their game with Deportivo on Sunday.
