The former Chesterfield boss, who helped keep the Pilgrims in League Two, will now begin preparations for the 2013/14 campaign while the finer details of his appointment are ironed out.

Sheridan met with Argyle owner James Brent and both parties are confident that a deal will be finalised in the next few days.

"Further announcements regarding John's position and the playing squad for 2013-14 will be made as and when appropriate," a club statement read.

"Top of his priorities is to assess and make decisions regarding the playing squad for the new campaign, which John will be addressing this week.

"Everyone at Home Park is thrilled that John is staying with us, pledges their full support to him, and wishes him every continued success as Plymouth Argyle manager."

The Republic of Ireland international took over in early January and was named the League Two Manager of the Month for March as their form picked up during the run-in.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
