O'Neill interested in Leicester job

Martin O'Neill is interested in returning to Leicester City.

Martin O'Neill is interested in returning to Leicester City.

The Guardian says the Northern Irishman, who has been out of work since he walked out on Aston Villa on the eve of last season, is eager to return to management and has not ruled out the possibility of going back to the club where he enjoyed five years of unprecedented success.

Although nothing is certain at this stage, Leicester will, at the very least, take encouragement from the fact that O'Neill has not dismissed the idea out of hand.

It is understood that much is likely to depend on the assurances he receives from Leicester's Thai owners, in terms of not only the time he would be given to get things right but also the level of financial backing that would be made available to him should they reach the Premier League.
