Martin O'Neill in talks with Stoke City

Martin O'Neill in talks with Stoke City

O'Neill had been the primary candidate for chairman Peter Coates since Mark Hughes was sacked.

O'Neill - and the FAI - still have some awkward questions to answer however.

Former Irish worldwide Kevin Kilbane gave his opinion about what may have a bearing on O'Neill's decision to move on.

Stoke could make a short-term appointment until the end of the season as they decide their next move.

He deems the club's traditional values to his liking, unlike several other Premier League outfits controlled by foreign ownership.

Coates, 80, has been handing over more responsibility to son John as he looks to take a back seat.

Ireland's next game is a March friendly in Turkey.

Eddie Niedzwiecki will take the team for Monday night's match against Manchester United at Old Trafford but the plan had always been for Hughes's former assistant to step aside for the new manager immediately after.

Ireland worldwide Jon Walters feels that Stoke City should be clamouring to appoint his national team manager Martin O'Neill. "The facts are that the players don't want to leave and the coach also continues".

Still, it would be a surprise if the manager didn't keep Delaney informed of yesterday's developments.

Despite verbally agreeing a new contract with the FAI, there has still been no official confirmation that O'Neill has lengthened his stay with the Boys in Green for the forthcoming Euro 2020 campaign.

The former Leicester and Celtic manager has been in charge of the country since 2013, but they failed to reach this year's World Cup, losing in the play-offs to Denmark. "If I was Stoke City, I'd be clamouring to appoint him".
