Will Martin O'Neill turn his back on Ireland as the nation enters the business end of qualification for Euro 2016?
It has been reported that Leicester City are open to talks to bring O'Neill back to the city where he enjoyed so much success before leaving to manage Celtic in 2000.
O'Neill and Leicester
O'Neill guided the club to two League Cup trophies in his time in Leicester, after winning promotion to the Premier League in his first season.

It is unclear whether O'Neill would leave his country in their time of need, with Ireland trailing Scotland by two points in Group D, but it might not be surprising considering the Irishman walked out on Aston Villa just five days before the start of a Premier League season, with reports citing his unhappiness with available transfer funds the reason for his exit.
O'Neill's soft spot
In the past, O'Neill has made no secret of his love for managing the day to day running of a club, something which he can't do at international level.
The Northern Irish-born manager would be an attractive option for Leicester having previously managed in the Premier League with Sunderland and Aston Villa.
Should O'Neill choose to take the reigns at the King Power stadium, reports have indicated Republic of Ireland Assistant Manager Roy Keane could take up the role, while ex Celtic boss Neil Lennon is also linked with the job as well as the post at Leicester.
