O'Neill: I'm committed to Ireland

MARTIN O'Neill (left) has re-affirmed his commitment as Ireland's senior international manager and will sit down with the FAI once the Euro 2016 campaign is done.

Speaking after making the FAI Cup Third Round draw, O'Neill refused to confirm whether he had received an approach from Leicester City.

"I have a commitment here and I've told you that before. We are slightly over half way through and we desperately want to get to France and the commitment is there 100%," he said.

"Leicester is a really good club. It's a brilliant club and their escape was fantastic.

"I have a commitment here and this is what I want to do. I can read too much into a future that may or not exist. I will take it up to the end of the involvement in the Euros and then we will have a look.

"There has been general progress with the side and with the infrastructure. I'm hoping to try and improve and I would re-look at it and see where we are.

"Obviously, the FAI would have their own thoughts."
