Slavisa Jokanovic’s wage demands are proving a stumbling block for Watford, reports the Watford Observer.
The Hornets head coach, who guided the club to promotion to the Premier League, is out-of-contract in the summer but his wage demands are the reason behind why a new deal has yet to be agreed.
Watford have offered the Serbian a new contract with improved terms but he told the national media over the weekend that a deal is “not close” to being completed.
The former Chelsea midfielder has said on more than one occasion that he would like to remain at Vicarage Road.
But Premier League sides Newcastle United and Sunderland are reportedly interested in Jokanovic’s services and his future at Watford remains unclear.
He had been reported as a target for Championship club Leeds United but it appears now the Whites owner Massimo Cellino is going for former Wigan Athletic and Brentford boss Uwe Rosler.
