Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says striker Darren Bent is not for sale ahead of the close of the transfer window.
It is understood Saphir Taider is set to leave Southampton just three weeks after arriving on a season-long loan.
The 48-year-old tactician has been rewarded for the positive impact he has had since taking over at El Madrigal in January.
He helped secure promotion to the Primera Division and they currently sit fourth in the top flight after 13 games.
The former Levante man has also coached the likes of Sevilla and Racing Santander, and will now remain with the Yellow Submarine until the summer of 2016 at least.
