Arter wants Everton's Coleman as peace-maker in Keane feud

Cardiff City midfielder Harry Arter is eager to reconcile with Republic of Ireland assistant coach Roy Keane.

The Irish Independent says Arter is keen to return to the Ireland squad for the next round of international fixtures following his heated argument with Keane, with captain Seamus Coleman, of Everton, acting as a peace broker.

Arter, who is expected to have his say on the row later this week, rejected a call up when he was named in the squad for the League of Nations game against Wales and last night's friendly in Poland, but he has been in touch with both Coleman and manager Martin O'Neill to try and solve the problem.

One of the reasons given for his reluctance to join up with the Ireland squad was the argument he had with assistant manager Keane during their summer training camp, although O'Neill stressed there were other issues, in the player's personal and professional life following a move to Cardiff City on deadline day, behind the decision.
