Paul Lambert is supremely confident of landing a new contract with Aston Villa.
The 44-year old Scotsman is 18 months into the three-year deal he signed after leaving Norwich City in June 2012 and has opened talks regarding an extension with the West Midlands outfit.
"I speak to (owner) Randy (Lerner) a lot, and things like that (a new contract) will take care of itself," said Lambert.
"I've another year after this anyway. I never look too far ahead.
"But I'm sure the discussions between me and the chairman will be the same as they've always been. They'll be pleasant, with no problems either way whatsoever."
He added: "They (Lerner and chief executive Paul Faulkner) see the vision and what's happened.
"They see the work that has been going on behind the scenes, to have that vision of what you want to do.
"If you have that vision, you need people seeing it and backing it, and Randy has been fantastic with that.
"He knows what's happened, and he knows the way we want to go, and as I said, he's backed it and been excellent."
