David Wagner, Huddersfield owner to discuss club's future next week

David Wagner will sit down with Huddersfield owner Dean Hoyle next week to discuss the club's future.

Wagner has 12 months to run on a two-year contract he signed last June, but speculation continues to mount over the 46-year-old.

He has been linked with various jobs, both in England and abroad, since leading the Terriers to an unlikely promotion last season.

After defying the odds again to keep them up, the German will be hot property this summer.

But Wagner reminded a news conference before Sunday's final game of the season against Arsenal that he still had a year to see out on his current deal.

"We will do it next week, what we've done in the past,'' Wagner said. "This discussion will be a discussion between Dean and me and then we'll go from there.

"I like everything we have done here so far and I'm under contract as well. He for sure has some very good ideas. I think it's important that I share my ideas as well.

"I totally get it that everybody asks this question, but for us, it's business as usual -- sit together after the season, reflect on what you've done and think about what you can do in the future together.''

Wagner said he was focused on what it will take for Huddersfield to build on their survival this season.

"Like always we will have to discuss a lot of things,'' he said. "Not only transfers but improvement of the facilities so this club is ready, is ambitious and has space to improve.

"This football club likes to improve and now we will discuss the next steps and there are a lot of steps for this club to take. This will be what the discussion is all about.

"After what the club has done in the past I'm pretty sure it's possible to take some further steps. How big and how quick, nobody knows.''

Town secured their Premier League status by holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night and Wagner said the club could now help give Arsene Wenger the send-off he deserves.

Wenger will end 22 years in charge of Arsenal at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday and Wagner paid the Frenchman a glowing tribute.

"Words don't describe enough how big this achievement is, what he has done for his football club and football in this country,'' Wagner added.

"I'm so happy that we are able to host him in his last Premier League game after 22 years, that we are able to host him in these circumstances.

"We really can give him all the honour and all the attention he deserves.''
