Lincoln City have made a formal approach for Shamrock Rovers boss Stephen Bradley

ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE REPORTS Shamrock Rovers manager Stephen Bradley is set to hold talks with League One side Lincoln City over their managerial vacancy. 

Bradley has won two league titles in Tallaght and has been one of the names on the list to replace departed boss Michael Appleton.  

According to Irish media outlet RTE Sport, Bradley has confirmed there has been talks with the English side. 

Lincoln chief executive Liam Scully said yesterday: "All I can say is that we have a clear idea of the profiling of the person we want. Our search parameters are based on that above all else. 

"We've just got to be realistic and put filters into the process, that's going to be the deciding factor. 


David Sneyd revealing on today’s Football Family podcast said:  

It is very likely to happen, now,” 

“Bradley was weighing it up and Lincoln have made their approach official, so that would suggest they believe they have their man.  

“I would be surprised if this doesn’t happen, but it’s not done yet.  

"We’re in a process, due diligence will be done. That may take time. We will communicate when there is something to communicate. 

"There’s a bit of work to be done in the background now. That’s where we’re at." 

The Irish Independent also report that the 37-year-old is understood to be attracted by the opportunity to manage in abroad. 

It would not be the first time he has courted interest from England. Last year Bradley had previously been linked with a vacant role at MK Dons but stayed at Rovers to win a second league title.
