Watford manager Javi Gracia is reportedly on the verge of signing a new three-year contract extension with the club.

Gracia's current deal at Vicarage Road expires next summer, and the Spaniard now looks set to survive the regular chopping and changing of managers by the Pozzo family following a bright start to the season.

The Hornets have won six of their opening 11 Premier League games to sit eighth in the table, already 13 points clear of the relegation zone.

Sky Sports News reports that the owners now plan to reward Gracia for the team's form by offering him a three-year deal which would see him stay at the club until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

The 48-year-old is the 10th manager to work for the club under the Pozzo family and would become the first to sign a contract extension at Vicarage Road since Malky Mackay in 2011.

Watford take on struggling Southampton at St Mary's this weekend in their final match before the international break.
