Former Ipswich Town boss Roy Keane has been linked with a return to club management at League Two Salford City.

Manchester United icon Keane, who has not managed a club since leaving Portman Road in 2011, is among the favourites to replace Graham Alexander – who was sacked earlier today despite an unbeaten start to the season which has them sitting fifth in the table.

Salford are, of course, co-owned by a host of the famed United Class of 92 players - Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, the latter of whom has taken caretaker charge. Thus, a link to Keane makes sense.

Caretaker boss Scholes is fifth favourite at 8/1, with former Braintree, Lincoln and Huddersfield boss Danny Cowley the current favourite at 5/2.
