Man Utd great Keane would be interested in Nottingham Forest return

Roy Keane would be interested in the Nottingham Forest vacancy if he was approached about it.

They are the sentiments of his representative Michael Kennedy who has denied claims that the former Manchester United midfielder is a target for Forest where he spent three years as a player in the early 1990s.

Some reports are linking 40-year old Keane with the job at the City Ground, which was vacated when new owners the Al-Hasawi family sacked Steve Cotterill recently, but he is not a confirmed target even though he is keen on the role.

"As far as I know, he has not been approached and he has not applied for the job. But I haven't spoken to him about it so I wouldn't know for sure," said Kennedy.

"I can understand why people would link him with the job, being an old Forest player, but I don't know if he is in the running for it.

"I thought it was Mick McCarthy until yesterday. Or perhaps Glenn Hoddle, according to some reports.

"But what I can say is that I think Roy would be interested if he was approached. He is available and I think it would be a job that would appeal to him."
