Former Socceroos boss Guus Hiddink will extend his contract as Russia coach through to 2010, the Dutchman said.

Hiddink, 60, who signed a two-year contract with Russia after leading Australia to the second round of last year's World Cup finals, agreed a new deal after meeting Russian soccer chief Vitaly Mutko on Monday.

"We had discussions with Mr Mutko and we agreed for me to stay on for two more years," Hiddink said.

"It is a wise decision not only to think about the upcoming match or matches but to think ahead to the future of Russian football."
