Tommy Wright is set to interview for the vacant Northern Ireland post.

Wright departed St Johnstone earlier this year after nine years in Perth as both assistant and then boss before he opted to leave. Immediately after his departure the 56-year-old was made bookies favourite to replace Michael O'Neill in the international role.

Other managers including Jim Magilton, Ian Baraclough and Motherwell's Stephen Robinson have all been tipped for interviews, too, and The Courier claim Wright will have discussions with the brass this week.

Northern Ireland have some big Euro 2020-linked matches coming up and it is understood they will want their new head coach in place before any games go ahead.

It comes a short time after Callum Davidson was officially unveiled as Wright's successor at McDiarmid Park. Wright has also been linked with the Dundee United position after Robbie Neilson left for Hearts.
