The Super Lig club's vice-president reveals that they have reached an agreement with the former Manchester United midfielder for him to take over as their new manager

Roy Keane is set to be named as the new manager of Turkish Super Lig club Kasimpasa, according to the club's vice-president.

The former Manchester United midfielder has been working as a pundit for ITV, since he was sacked by Ipswich Town nearly two years ago.

Hasan Hilmi Oksuz told AA: "We reached an agreement with Keane. He will be in Istanbul tomorrow if nothing extraordinary happens.

"We will benefit from his experiences right into our vision. We believe he can lead this club to the glorious results."

Kasimpasa are in Turkey's top-flight for just the eighth season in their 91-year history but currently sit second in the Super Lig table behind giants Galatasaray.

The Istanbul-based club sacked former manager Metin Diyadin, despite him leading them to promotion from the second tier last season and to their lofty position this term.
