The Republic of Ireland soccer team could have a new boss by later today as the FAI are reportedly looking to seal a deal to hire the former Ipswich Town boss.
According to sources at Sky Sports, McCarthy who was Irish manger between 1996 – 2002 is expected to sign a deal before the end of the weekend.
It is believed that the FAI are keen to tie up a deal as quickly as possible and they hope to have a new manager in place before the European Championship qualifying draw which is due to take place early next month.
McCarthy is also reportedly keen on taking up the role which was vacated by Martin O’Neill earlier this week.
It is reported that McCarthy will sign a two year contract that will be worth €1.2m per year.
