The former Manchester United player Roy Keane is reportedly about to sign as manager with the Australian side A-League side Melbourne Victory.

Keane has been out of work since January when he was sacked by Ipswich after his 20 months in charge failed to gain them Premier League promotion.

The Daily Mail newspaper says Keane is currently in Melbourne finalising the details of his contract.

Although Keane failed at Ipswich he did take Sunderland from the bottom of the table to clinch the Championship title and kept them in the top-flight the following year.
