Cox Eager To Finalise New Deal
Mansfield Town boss Paul Cox says Monday's defeat to York in the play-offs has made him even more determined to be a success at the Stags.
Cox, whose current contract runs out in the summer, has verbally agreed a new deal with chairman John Radford but nothing has yet been signed.
He says he wants to be in charge when the new season begins in August.
He told Mansfield 103.2: "The intention's to sign. I've got a fantastic relationship with John. We really want to take this club places.
"We've come up short this season even if some people think we've far outweighed expectation.
"When I came here, there was a bit of a dark cloud hanging over the ground and I think we've blown that away.
"But, foundations are only there if we want to build on them and I'm desperate to build on them now.
"I want to club to go forward. I'm very ambitious as is the chairman so both of us are going forward together."
