PSV Eindhoven and Australia coach Guus Hiddink has said he is close to accepting a deal to coach Russia's national team after the World Cup in July. A day after PSV clinched the Dutch league title, Hiddink appeared on the television program Holland Sport and said he was "in heavy discussions" with Russia's soccer federation. "My agents are busy with the final details of the contract," Hiddink said. PSV won its 19th Dutch title on Sunday with a 1-1 draw against FC Groningen. This was Hiddink's sixth title with PSV over two stints (1986-1990 and 2002-2006). Hiddink's announcement ends speculation about his next destination after his contract with PSV expires at the end of this season. His commitment to Australia ends after the World Cup. His agents have quashed rumours that he would follow Sven-Goran Eriksson as England coach. (AP)
