Mark Wotte admits he would be happy to continue in his role as head coach of Southampton, should the club decide to keep him on.

The Dutchman has already received offers from clubs abroad but will meet with prospective new owners Pinnacle Consortium on Wednesday before making any decision on his future.

Wotte, whose current contract expires on July 1, took the reins at St Mary's following the resignation of Jan Poortvliet but was unable to steer the Saints away from relegation.

"The last couple of weeks I have received some offers from abroad but I have told them I am waiting for Saints to make a decision," he told the Daily Echo. "We have to see [on Wednesday] what the future will bring for all of us.

"If the club wants me to continue I'm happy to do it but if the club doesn't want me to continue I hope they will face better times very soon and hopefully have a situation where the financial troubles are gone and there is stability and continuity.

"I'm happy with the agreement for three weeks from the Pinnacle group, because it makes our position stronger towards other clubs that were really looking for a bargain buy."
