O'Neill yet to sign Ireland contract


Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has yet to sign his new contract with the Football Association of Ireland but has verbally agreed to a two-year extension.

The FAI announced on Tuesday 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.

However, O'Neill has revealed that he has yet to sign the contract but is confident there will not be any problems when it comes to putting pen to paper even if Ireland struggle at Euro 2016.

"I've shaken hands with (chief executive) John (Delaney), that's all that's necessary. John felt that going into the Euros it might be a decent thing to do, so fine. I'm happy with it," O'Neill told reporters after Ireland's first training session in Versailles.

"John and I had a conversation, I've shaken hands with him and I have implicit trust in him."
