Chelsea Handler is close to landing a deal with Netflix.

The 39-year-old presenter - who is to leave E! when her 'Chelsea Lately' contract ends - is in negotiations with the subscription streaming service to front a new programme for them, though it is as yet unclear what the venture would entail.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''Handler has a deal with Netflix, but the format is to be decided.''

It was recently claimed that Chelsea had met with CBS executives to discuss the possibility of a syndicated daytime talk show, following in the footsteps of the likes of Kris Jenner, Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper.

Chelsea's manager Irving Azoff has insisted his client is inundated with offers of work for when her contract ends in nine months time.

He said: ''Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires. She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.''

Chelsea - who is believed to make around $9 million a year from the show - has previously voiced her concerns about the E! network and described it as ''a sad, sad place to live.''
