Sheffield Wednesday owner Milan Mandaric has said he will consider making an approach for Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane after the Owls sacked Dave Jones last week.

Mandaric has drawn up a shortlist of five candidates which is believed to include the Corkman but insists that he will ask the FAI for permission to speak to him first.

“If I am going to do anything with Roy I will have to call the federation(FAI) and see if I can get a chance to talk to him,” Mandaric told the Sunday Times.

“You have to go through the channels for something like that. I will probably look into that.”

“Roy took the job with Martin O’Neill so it would be difficult to move him out of there.

“I would like to look at him. He has a superb personality and won promotion with Sunderland. I am going to look at the situation."

The Owls looked set to appoint Neil Warnock as their new manager during the week but the deal fell through after the Wednesday fans said they would revolt if he was given the position.
