Roma captain Christian Panucci is expected to extend his contract with the Italian giants after Euro 2008.
The experienced defender's agent, Oscar Damiani, has confirmed Panucci wants to stay with the Giallorossi longer than his current contract - which expires in 2009.
And the 35-year-old will meet with the club's board in July to discuss an extension after he has featured in Italy's Euro 2008 campaign.
"We shall renew Panucci's contract once the European Championships are over," Damiani said.
"There is no hurry at all, as the desire of both parties is that of continuing this rapport.
"Christian is very fine in Rome and he has no intention of leaving the capital city because he believes in the project of the Giallorossi.
"Also, here he rediscovered the national team and an important competition like the European Championship."
