Robbie Keane has been linked with a coaching role at Championship side Middlesbrough.
The Sun reports that Jonathan Woodgate is set to be appointed as successor to Tony Pulis who departed the Riverside last month.
It's said that Woodgate is considering asking Keane to join his backroom team. The pair were teammates at both Leeds and Spurs. The former England centre-back joined the Middlesbrough coaching staff in 2017.
Keane is currently working as an assistant to Ireland boss Mick McCarthy, a role which he took up when McCarthy was appointed in late November.
It is possible that Keane could combine the two jobs with it said the former Ireland captain would welcome such an arrangement.
Keane confirmed on Wednesday that he has been approached by Middlesbrough.
