JAMES McCLEAN will be working with his "Dad" when fellow Derryman Martin O'Neill takes control of the Ireland senior team, according to David Meyler.

“See your dad's taking over Ireland by the looks of the Irish press,” said Meyler in a Twitter chat with McClean.

And McClean (above) is more than happy that Roy Keane is part of the new management team.

“Obviously, everyone has their opinion. I think a player that was as good as Roy Keane to be in the Ireland set-up would be great,” was McClean's response to news that Keane is in the mix.

Meyler, who Keane signed for Sunderland when he was manager at the Stadium of Light, is also understandably pleased but limited himself to: “It will be interesting if it happens.”

The final details of the deal which will bring O’Neill and Keane to Dublin have been signed off and an official announcement on the appointment is imminent.
