Hiddink reveals he is leaving PSV

Hiddink has been tipped to become the new Russia coach - but has not ruled out the England manager's job
PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink has revealed he will definitely leave the club at the end of the season.

Hiddink, 59, has been tipped to succeed England's Sven-Goran Eriksson, but has also been linked with Russia.

The Dutchman has promised to reveal his plans at the end of March, but he added: "There's nothing concrete now, let alone anything signed."

Hiddink, who has coached Australia alongside PSV duties, will be in charge of the Socceroos at the World Cup.

Under Hiddink's guidance, Australia qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time in 32 years.

However, Football Federation Australia has admitted it does not expect Hiddink to stay on after the World Cup.

On Thursday, Hiddink said he had already decided on his next move.

With the Football Association still thought to be compiling a list of contenders to succeed Eriksson, that appeared to rule the Dutchman out of contention for the England post.

However, as he announced his PSV exit, Hiddink said he was yet to commit to anything.

"I know that there are rumours flying left and right, but we're still in the hatching stage," he said.

"I've decided to stop as trainer with PSV at the end of this season, and that's about it.

"It's been a good stretch, and at a certain moment it had to end."
