Martin O'Neill claims that the Republic of Ireland are yet to approach him about the vacant managerial post.

Martin O'Neill has insisted that he has not been contacted about the vacant Republic of Ireland managerial post.

The former Sunderland manager has been named as the favourite to succeed Giovanni Trapattoni in the role, but is yet to hold talks with the Irish FA.

"I have had no contact whatsoever from anyone at the Irish FA at this moment and there's not much more I can say about it," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying.

Recent reports suggest that the governing body is planning to hire a new manager in time for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Germany and Kazakhstan.

However, Ireland's chances of reaching the finals all but ended following their 1-0 defeat to Austria.
