Roy Keane is set to replace Sven Goran Eriksson as manager of Leicester City.

The former Sunderland and Ipswich boss has been identified by the club’s ambitious owners as the man to lead Leicester back into the Premier League.

It is believed Martin O’Neill, the early front-runner to return to his former club, may have recommended Keane for the position to the club’s ambitious owners, Thai-based Asian Football Investments.

Keane, 40, has been out of work since being let go by Ipswich in January.

After recharging the batteries, the former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder is eager to return to management and was recently linked with the Icelandic post.

He would be expected to land running at Leicester, 3-1 winners on Tuesday at Burnley, as the owners are not known for patience.

Paulo Sousa was sacked after nine games last season, while Eriksson only lasted 15 games into the current campaign.

Keane led Sunderland to the Championship title in 2007, but experienced less success at Ipswich.

Leicester had considered a twin-track management team with Kevin Keegan and Lee Clark in harness but that set-up didn’t appeal to the Huddersfield Town boss.
