Martin O'Neill in talks with Stoke City

Martin O'Neill in talks with Stoke City

Former Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores has also been linked this week but the Potters board will have to negotiate a fee with Spanish side Espanyol given that he is still under contract with them until summer 2019.

Martin O'Neill is Stoke's second-choice for the gig, and a report by Colin Young and Dan McDonnell in today's Irish Independent claims that O'Neill is going to meet the club for talks.

Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill is now the bookmakers' favourite.

Flores is understood to be the leading contender to succeed Mark Hughes after Stoke had to abandon their hopes of luring Gary Rowett away from Derby after he signed a new contract with the Championship promotion hopefuls.

What's more, it appears that Roy Keane will likely be part of any potential deal with O'Neil.

But what sets " Connected By Love " apart is its earnest in sentiment and overblown arrangements. But this same, potentially devastating event, reminds every one of the ties that bind.

Although the Football Association of Ireland said yesterday that they had not received any approach from Stoke, the fact that O'Neill is officially out of contract meant neither the club nor O'Neill were obliged to notify the association.

Indeed, Keane is thought to have helped persuade O'Neill to stay on over the last few weeks, but there is a growing risk Stoke will make an offer that is too good for them to turn down.

Other loyal members of his coaching staff, including Steve Guppy, Steve Walford, and goalkeeping coach Seamus McDonagh, are also set to follow O'Neill from the Ireland camp into the new adventure.

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