BATH City manager Jerry Gill is expected to sign a one-year contract extension with the Romans amid reported interest from managerless Weymouth.

Gill, who managed Weymouth for six weeks in 2010, is set to pen a deal tying him to Twerton Park until May 2022.

The development comes as the Terras continue their search for a successor to Mark Molesley, who left for League Two side Southend two weeks ago.

One senior source at Bath dismissed claims of an approach by Weymouth for Gill, insisting the former Birmingham City right-back is staying put.

They told Echosport: "Jerry's certainly not going anywhere.

"He's about to sign a new contract. We've been negotiating for a while and he's certainly not leaving Twerton Park.

"That would take him into 2022."

Meanwhile, Weymouth have drawn up a 10-strong shortlist, with interviews set to conclude next week.

Terras' interim director of football Paul Maitland said: "We're still interviewing, simple as that.

"We've interviewed some (candidates) and we've got a couple more to do tomorrow.

"The sub-committee need to put their recommendations forward to the board to make a final decision or decide if they want to see them again.

"It's just the way it's panned out. It's holiday time and all the rest of it with people's commitments work-wise.

"We haven't been able to speak to all of them this week, so we're speaking with two tomorrow, then everyone's spoken to on our list.

"Then it's a decision for the board to make on who they want to appoint.

"It's still an ongoing process. We can't name any names - that's not fair to them and would be unprofessional to do so.

"We're trying to make sure we do this the right way."
