Roy Keane has arrived in Turkey, where he is expected to finalise a deal to coach Istanbul based Kasimpasa.
The former Sunderland and Ipswich boss has not had a managerial position for nearly two years after leaving Portman Road in January 2011.
Keane has stayed involved in the game via the media, and has worked as a TV pundit in both Ireland and Britain.
But now he is ready to make a shock return to management in Turkey with Kasimpasa.
Keane was filmed arriving at Ataturk airport on Monday evening, but he refused to make any comments to the media.
