Roy Keane offered the vacant Ipswich job

Roy Keane could be set for a quick return to management after being offered the vacant Ipswich job just hours after the club sacked Jim Magilton. The former Manchester United legend has been offered the job on a number of conditions including that he relocates to the Ipswich area.

Keane walked out of the Stadium of Light in December after an eventful two years in charge which saw the Black Cats promoted back into the Premier League and has hinted at his desire to return to management sooner rather than later.

Ipswich are owned by businessman Marcus Evans who has estimated fortune of £200m so Keane would have money to spend on players if he decided to take the job. The arrival of the former Manchester United captain would be a big coup for the Suffolk club in their attempt to win promotion back into the Premier League next year.
