Martin O'Neill in talks with Stoke City

Irish double act eyed by Potters

Martin O'Neill is expected to meet with Stoke City officials tonight as the possibility of the Irish manager and his assistant, Roy Keane, taking up the reigns at the bet365 stadium becoming more of a reality.

It has been reported that Sanchez Flores has been offered a five-year contract by Stoke and was set to inform the club of his decision last night.

The 65-year-old fits the bill because of his experience at top-flight level and the fact he has always been held in high regard by the Stoke hierarchy.

Martin O'Neill and Derby County manager Gary Rowett have been linked with the job vacancy, with the latter recently ruling himself out of a move after he signed a new deal with the Rams.

The Sandton Chronicle reported Police Captain Granvile Meyer said: 'The EFF supporters have caused damage inside the [H&M] store. Social media users also reported protests at other stores in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Former Ireland captain Keane would be tipped to compete for the post, were O'Neill to quit, but the indications are that he's also eager to make a Premier League comeback and could deem this a better route into an eventual managerial post in the UK.

The Irish Independent does, however, speculate that, should the package at Stoke fail to find room for Keane, he will remain with the FAI and another of the Irish backroom staff - Steves Guppy, Walford or Seamus McDonagh - will join O'Neill. It appears that O'Neill, whilst having agreed a contract with the FAI was still open to offers from others. Keane will nearly certainly join O'Neill at the Bet365 Stadium if Stoke can agree terms with them.

Those comments were aired in the immediate aftermath of Ireland's hammering at the hands of Denmark in the November World Cup play-off.
