The former Donegal manager recently completed his Uefa A Licence.
A report in The Irish Sun this morning has linked Jim McGuinness with the vacant role at Galway United following the departure of Shane Keegan.
The 45-year-old left his role with Chinese club Beijing Sinobo Guoan citing, “personal, family reasons”. McGuinness indicated at the time that he would like to return to Europe to take up a coaching role.
The League of Ireland club parted ways with Keegan in June by “mutual consent”. The former Wexford Youths coach had been with the club since before the 2017 season during which they were relegated from the Premier Division. The club recently hit the headlines with the news of a takeover from two Saudi Arabian businessmen.
McGuinness has previously spent five years with Glasgow Celtic before taking up the Assistant Coaching job in China.
