Manchester United legend Roy Keane is being linked with a move to Aston Villa.

The Daily Star says Keane is ready to become Paul Lambert's No2 at Aston Villa.

Ireland assistant boss Keane is due to fly out with their squad to America today ahead of friendlies against Costa Rica and Portugal.

The Villa job would enable him to keep his position alongside Martin O'Neill and barring any late change of heart he is expected to rubber-stamp the role upon his return after pulling out running to become Celtic's new boss earlier this week.
