Cardiff midfielder Arter facing Ireland snub over Keane rift

Cardiff City midfielder Harry Arter is expected to be overlooked for the Republic of Ireland's latest squad selection.

The Irish Independent says Arter is not expected to be included in the trimmed down Ireland squad to face Wales in the first UEFA Nations League game.

If the 28-year-old is not involved in the squad for the first competitive game since the World Cup playoff defeat to Denmark, it will cast doubts over the Cardiff midfielder's short-term international future.

Martin O'Neill confirmed last week that Arter was involved in a heated bust-up with Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane during the last Ireland get-together in June, and it is not known whether the altercation is behind the latest development.
