​O'Neill and Keane remain as Republic of Ireland management team

Martin O'Neill has signed a new deal to continue as manager of the Republic of Ireland.

The Football Association of Ireland had previously indicated that they had come to a verbal agreement with O'Neill to remain for the World Cup qualifiers.

O'Neill's backroom staff, including assistant Roy Keane, are also staying.

"I have signed a new deal," he said. "It was never an issue. Roy and the backroom staff have followed suit. We're delighted."
