It's being reported that Ireland management team Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane have been offered the vacant managerial roles at Stoke.
Manager O'Neill and his assistant were second-choice behind Espanyol manager Quique Sanchez Flores; however, with Flores committing his immediate future to the Catalan club, the Ireland duo are now Stoke's No 1 target, according to The Telegraph.
O'Neill and Keane have agreed an extension of their deal with the FAI until the European Championships in 2020, but this agreement is merely verbal, with a written contract yet to be signed.
Ireland next play in March when they take on Turkey in a friendly in Antalya.
Stoke are currently 18th in the Premier League table, and managerless since the sacking of Keane's former Manchester United team-mate Mark Hughes on 6 January. They travel to face Man U at Old Trafford on Monday evening.
