Carlton are looking to re-sign off-contract coach Michael Voss "as soon as possible", with a new deal likely to come prior to the start of the 2024 season.

Reports of a two-year deal for the Blues boss emerged earlier this month, with Voss expected to sign on the dotted line ahead of Carlton's season-opening outing against Brisbane in early March.

Voss, who is entering his third term at Princes Park, would be contracted until the end of the 2026 season once the deal is finalised.

Speaking to multiple media outlets, Carlton chief executive Brian Cook said it would be "good business" to lock away Voss soon.

"It's wise to try and tie up your coach before the season starts," Cook said.

"Given his long-term view of our football club, our list management and where that's heading, we think it's really appropriate and good business to re-appoint Vossy and get him contracted as soon as possible.

"We always backed Vossy and felt he's not only a good coach but he's a great leader. He's great for our footy club, he's great for our business."

A new deal for Voss would see Adelaide's Matthew Nicks, Geelong's Chris Scott and Fremantle's Justin Longmuir as the last remaining coaches without contracts beyond this year.

Scott has been rumoured to be nearing a new deal at Kardinia Park, one which is likely to take him through to the end of 2026 as well.

Both Nicks and Longmuir could be tasked with entering the new season without deals signed, potentially letting their on-field results swing the discussions.

Voss has won 26 of his 47 games in charge of the Blues after adding 15 victories to his tally in 2023 alone thanks to a preliminary final finish.

Carlton's 2024 campaign will commence with a trip to the Gabba to face the Lions on Friday, March 8.
