David Wagner has landed a huge £2.5m (€2.83m) bonus after guiding Huddersfield Town to Premier League survival'

And Huddersfield are now ready to step up talks with their highly-regarded head coach about a new contract, which will offer the German a significant increase on his present £2.5m-a-year deal.

Wagner is attracting attention from rival Premier League clubs, including Leicester and Southampton, while a number of Bundesliga clubs have registered interest in the past.

Wagner said: "Staying up is an unbelievable achievement for this football club and I'm so delighted that I have been a part of it.

"This football team was in the bottom three only once this season.

"We have shown that you should never think you're not able to make steps. You always have to try and do it. I think we can make further steps but how big and how quick nobody knows." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
