WIDESPREAD REPORTS SUGGEST Ireland manager Martin O’Neill will be at Selhurst Park tonight to cast an eye over West Ham player Mark Noble, with a view towards selecting him for Ireland.

The 26-year-old, who is expected to start in their game with Crystal Palace tonight, has represented England at under-21 level, but is still eligible for the Irish senior side.

Noble is the latest ‘Granny Rule’ player to have been linked to the Irish team, with Curtis Davies and Callum McManaman also among those being mentioned of late.

With that in mind, do you think Noble would improve Ireland?
