Portsmouth captain Aaron Mokoena has confirmed he is set to sign a new deal with the club.
Prolonged talks have been ongoing between the South Africa international and the Championship strugglers.
And now a deal has been reached, with 29-year-old Mokoena is poised to put pen to paper on a reported three-year contract.
The defender told The News: "I've made my decision I want to stay.
"I just want to be loyal, which is what I always do.
"I'm loving it here. The people are so genuine and the fans are just fantastic.
"It is 99-per-cent done. The personal stuff is all sorted - I'm just waiting now for the chief executive to sign it off."
Pompey boss Steve Cotterill, meanwhile, has confirmed that the wait goes on for the proposed loan signing of Tottenham's Kyle Naughton.
He said: "I don't know the answer to it (when Naughton will be joining) at the moment. We've gone round and round in circles with that one.
"There have been a million and one different reasons why we haven't got him yet.
"There was the one last week about him signing a new Spurs contract. That seems to have come and gone and then something else comes up.
"It isn't anybody's fault. I am not looking to say it's Pompey not being good at their job again.
"There have obviously been a few deals done between Portsmouth and Tottenham over the past few years, so there are probably reasons behind it.
"Naughton wants to come, for sure - and Harry wants him to come as well. So that's a bonus.
"There is nothing more I can do. Nothing more than I have been doing for the past six weeks of being patient with it and about four weeks of chasing it.
"Naughton is a very attacking full-back which is what I would like to have."
Meanwhile, Pompey goalkeeper Darryl Flahavan has signed a new one-month contract on the South Coast.
