England coach Eddie Jones is reportedly on the verge of agreeing a new contract through to the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

The Australian's current deal does not expire until August next year but his future has been the subject of speculation since he guided England to the World Cup final in Japan last November.

The 60-year-old would surpass World Cup winner Clive Woodward as England's longest-serving coach if he stays in charge until the next World Cup in France.

The Rugby Football Union is expected to make an announcement on Thursday, according to the BBC.
