Roy Keane poised to take over as manager of Turkish side Kasimpasa

The Super Lig club's vice president reveals that it has reached an agreement with the former Manchester United midfielder for him to take over as 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 is in Turkey's top flight for just the eighth season in its 91-year history and currently sits second in the Super Lig table behind giant Galatasaray.

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