One thing is for sure, however, Les is sure that the club have targeted the right man for the job following the departure of George Graham.
"The club probably see Glenn as the man to bring back the kind of football the fans want to watch and he is the only one they would have accepted after George.
"You only have to look at his record to see how well he has done. After his success at Swindon he went to Chelsea and really started things off there. He took the England job and only lost that through something he allegedly said rather than through results.
"Then he was given an opportunity at what some people would call an `unfashionable' club in Southampton and transformed them. He is definitely the right man for the job and the fans will be more than happy about it."
On his own prospects under the new man, Les added: "It will be worth me talking to him because a lot depends on what his ideas are and how he sees me in the side."
"I have always said I would like to stay at the club and the contract talks are progressing nicely. The club have offered me a two-year deal but I want to play football. I don't want to sign a new contract and then sit on the bench or not be playing for two years.
"There is still some talking to do before it gets finalised."
Les Ferdinand has admitted that he will want to sit down and discuss his potential role in the team with Glenn Hoddle - when he is appointed - before committing himself to a new contract.
