Fiorentina supremo Andrea Della Valle has reiterated his desire to extend the current deals of coach Cesare Prandelli and star striker Luca Toni.
Della Valle is determined to keep both at the club for extended periods and he confirmed talks will commence early in the New Year.
Della Valle has just extended the contract of his sporting director Pantaleo Corvino.
"After Christmas we will look at the situations of Prandelli and Toni. Corvino's new contract has been the first step," he revealed.
"We are at the beginning of our plan and now our priority is to arrive to the winter break getting as many points as possible. After Christmas we will think to define the other positions like Prandelli and Toni."
Prandelli admitted he would be only too happy to extend his stay with La Viola.
"I have a great relationship with the Della Valle family. If they extend my deal I will be happy, but there is no hurry," he said.
