Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has given an update on his contract with the FAI.

Following a tumultuous week where he was strongly linked with the Stoke City job, O’Neill has spoken to the FAI, who tweeted out a video of the Derry native clarifying the situation.

O’Neill stated that he has agreed a deal with the FAI, and that signing it is a mere formality at this stage.

“John [Delaney] and I have agreed terms, and it’s just a matter now of the lawyers looking over some sort of detail and getting it signed up.”

He went on to discuss the upcoming draw for the UEFA Nations League in the video, but there was no mention of the contact with Stoke or the events of the last week.

Although this joint-stance of O’Neill and the FAI is certainly a statement of intent following a week of uncertainty, the scenario remains somewhat the same as the last update in October when there was an agreement in place, but the contract wasn’t actually signed. However, it now looks likely that O’Neill will remain in charge of the Boys in Green for another campaign.
