Martin O'Neill would be interested in a move to Nottingham Forest as manager, according to assistant John Robertson.

O'Neil has been heavily linked with a return to management with Forest following the resignation of Steve McClaren.

After leaving Aston Villa in acrimonious circumstances, many are unsure when O'Neill would be returning to the game, but according to Robertson, he's itching to get back into action.

"Martin will come back," he said.

"He is very good at the job and football needs people like him. His career has been very successful.


"I talk to Martin all the time, and I spoke with him last week. I know he wants to come back.

"It would have to be the right club, one where he would have a chance of achieving success. But if a club made the offer, Martin would look at it seriously."

With the bookmakers, O'Neill is 6/1 favourite to take the position at the City Ground, along with former player Stuart Pearce and Roy Keane, while Ex-Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley also in contention.

"The early money has all been for Martin O'Neill and he seems to be the man the supporters want," Jonathan Witty from Sky Bet said.

"Whether the club can afford him remains to be seen, but Pearce and Keane are also proving popular as they were tremendous players for the club."
