O'Neill ready to sign contract


FAI chief executive John Delaney expects Martin O'Neill to sign his new contract within the 'next week or so'.

The FAI announced last month that O'Neill, assistant manager Roy Keane and coaches Steve Guppy, Seamus McDonagh and Steve Walford had all agreed to carry on for the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign, but it subsequently emerged that they had yet to put pen to paper on the deal.

Following the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2016 exit at the hands of France, O'Neill reiterated his commitment to leading the Boys in Green to the World Cup and Delaney believes the matter will be resolved in the near future.

“There’s no issues about that. Before the Euros we announced, with Martin, that the management team’s contracts would be renewed and that they would be staying with us through the World Cup qualifiers," Delaney explained.

"I spoke to Martin last week, the contracts are there to be signed and it’s only a matter of myself and Martin meeting up to sign. I would say in the next week or so, the next time I meet him, but everything is agreed."
