It appears the Wellington Phoenix' battle to get a new A-League licence extension may be over.

Football Federation Australia boss David Gallop will hold a media conference in Sydney today, the same time that Phoenix chairman Rob Morrison will front media over a licence-extension update at midday.

The Wellington club's future in the competition has been up in the air since their request for a 10-year extension was declined by Football Federation Australia in October.

The Phoenix could also unveil the signing of Melbourne Victory striker Kosta Barbarouses who's reportedly agreed to a multi-year contract.
