VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) _ High-scoring forward Jaromir Jagr and the Pittsburgh Penguins reportedly have agreed to a contract extension worth approximately $40 million.

Although both sides refused to discuss the matter at length, the contract could be announced early this week, the Toronto Sun said Sunday.

The deal will retain the terms of Jagr's previous deal, which pays him $5.05 million this season and $4.07 next season, but adds four more years at a total of $40 million, starting at $9.5 million in the 1999-2000 season and escalating to $10.4 million in 2003-04.

``We're still talking,'' Jagr said. ``There are no problems, not yet anyway.''
