SKY hope to tie down star pundit Graeme Souness to a new deal despite losing some of his colleagues.
Souey has been a main man even though the station are going for a younger and more diverse panel.
With Jeff Stelling leaving and other older members of staff under review, it would be an own goal to lose the ‘Godfather’.
Souness is one of Scottish and English football’s most celebrated legends with a career spanning over 20 years.
The midfield great started out at Tottenham in 1970 but made a name for himself two years later at Middlesbrough.
That led to a major move to Liverpool in 1978 where he established himself as one of the top flight’s best with 54 goals and 23 assists in 347 appearances.
The 68-year-old left Anfield in 1984 and played for Sampdoria as well as Rangers, where he was appointed as the club’s first ever player-manager, before rolling credits on his celebrated career in 1991.
Souness won five league titles, three League Cups and three European Cups with the Reds.
He also counts one Coppa Italia trophy as well as the 1987 double with the Gers.
The Scotland legend, who amassed 59 caps, pursued a career as manager as he took over at Liverpool on the same year he hung up his boots.
Souness left three years later and went on to coach Galatasaray, Southampton, Torino, Benfica, Blackburn and Newcastle.

He departed from the Magpies in 2006 and turned to media work soon after.
Souness has been established as one of Sky’s most popular pundits and that is why the station is now looking to extend the Liverpool legend’s stay.
