Slavisa Jokanovic is to hold talks with Fulham chiefs over a new deal after the playoff final, but he will reportedly only put pen to paper if he is financially backed.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic will reportedly only commit to a new contract if the club's hierarchy can match his own ambition.

The 49-year-old is on the brink of guiding the Cottagers back to the Premier League, needing to overcome just one more hurdle - Saturday's playoff final against Aston Villa - to achieve his mission.

Jokanovic is expected to be in demand this summer, even if his side miss out on promotion, and Fulham chiefs therefore plan to hold talks on Sunday.

According to the London Evening Standard, the Serb needs to hear that he will be financially backed in the transfer market if he is to put pen to paper, particularly if he is preparing his side for the Premier League.

A rumoured target for Chelsea, Jokanovic has just one year left to run on his existing terms at Craven Cottage.
