Head Coach Rumour: O'Neill Holds Informal Talks

Norwich City have held informal talks with Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill over the manager's job at Carrow Road, reports BBC Radio Norfolk.

The Championship club sacked Alex Neil in March, with Alan Irvine taking over on an interim basis for the rest of the season.

O'Neill, 47, led Northern Ireland to the last 16 at Euro 2016, having signed a new four-year deal in March 2016.

It is understood O'Neill is one of several candidates being spoken to.

O'Neill's current deal with the Irish Football Association includes a release clause fee of £750,000 for Premier League clubs, although it is understood to be lower for Championship sides.

City are expected to appoint a new head coach soon after the final game of the season, against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.
