O’Neill says terms are agreed on a new deal

Martin O’Neill has confirmed that he has agreed terms on a new contract as Republic of Ireland manager.

The 65 year old says he is yet to sign the deal, but claims terms have been agreed with John Delaney and the FAI.

It has been a whirlwind week for the former Celtic boss, who rejected the chance to become Stoke City’s manager.

“That (the contract situation) has been resolved,” he told FAI TV.

“John and I have agreed terms and it’s just a matter of the lawyers looking over some sort of detail and getting it signed up.”

O’Neill also spoke of the upcoming Nations League, and talked about blooding some younger players in the boys in green’s upcoming friendlies.

The Nations League draw is an interesting one and it’s taking place before the Euros and the games themselves will be pretty important,” he continued.

“We have got a couple of friendly games coming up and that might be the time to introduce some younger players who are pretty hungry – so let’s see how that goes.”
