Fiorentina will hand sporting director Pantaleo Corvino a new contract at the club before the end of 2011.
Corvino has been criticised for his transfer work in Tuscany over the last 18 months, but the Viola are set to stick by him.
According to reports in the region, Corvino will be offered a contract extension just weeks after boss Sinisa Mihajlovic was sacked.
La Nazione suggests that the former Lecce official will put pen to paper in late November once he gets back from a scouting tour of Europe and South America.
