Bradford manager Peter Taylor hopes to sign a contract at Valley Parade before the final home game of the season against Northampton.
Taylor agreed a short-term contract until the end of the season when he replaced Stuart McCall as manager in February and is currently in talks with the Bantams board over a new long-term deal.
Taylor, who wants the club to move to a new training ground as part of the negotiations, told the club's official website: "As far as I'm concerned, personally speaking I would expect it to be done before our last home game."
He added: "I can't give everything away, but it can't be done now. There are a few little things that need agreeing on. But I honestly don't see there being a problem and I'm really hopeful it's all done and dusted by Northampton.
"I want to get it sorted because all of a sudden August will be here again and you can't let this go on too far. I'm very pleased we've won six matches, but there's still an awful lot of planning needed to be done before pre-season.
Joint-chairman Mark Lawn said: "We agree with Peter. We would like to get it sorted as soon as possible and we're working towards that."
