Stoke City news: The Potters offer Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane Premier League return to management

12

STOKE CITY have reportedly offered Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane a return to the Premier League.

The Potters are searching for a new manager after sacking Mark Hughes last weekend following a miserable run of results.

Former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores rejected the opportunity to take over as he announced his intention to stay with Espanyol earlier today.

And that has left Stoke chiefs desperately trying to persuade O'Neill and Keane to quit the Republic of Ireland after four years in the international set-up, according to The Telegraph.

The strugglers are currently thrashing out terms with 65-year-old O'Neill, who will bring Manchester United legend Keane as his No2, for what would be his first club job since Sunderland sacked him in 2013.

It still remains to be seen whether the ex-Celtic and Leicester chief will accept Stoke's offer after verbally agreeing to extend his deal with the Irish.

It is claimed that the length of contract offered by the Potters is proving to be a sticking point.

O'Neill is not interested in a short-term arrangement, with him believing that would put his potential job at risk in the summer even if he guides the club to safety.

It is claimed he snubbed a similar deal from Everton earlier this season after they axed Ronald Koeman.

The veteran had opted to remain with the Irish and was looking forward to rebuilding the nation's side and attempting to lead them to Euro 2020.
