The Hague:

The Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk is reported to be set to sign a new contract tying him to the Oranje for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and Euro 2016 in France.

Van Marwijk's existing deal runs out after Euro 2012.

"It should be sorted out quickly, everything's going well, the only thing that's missing is the signature," the manager's agent, Rob Jansen told De Telegraaf on Monday.

According to the paper the new deal contains no get out clause should a club come along and make an offer for the man who guided Holland to last year's World Cup final in South Africa.

News of a fresh deal comes in the wake of attempts by Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven to sign the 59-year-old who succeeded Marco van Basten in August 2008 after next year's European championships.

Under van Marwijk the Netherlands coasted through qualifying for Euro 2012, winning all their ten matches to top Group E.
