Speculation is mounting that Mickey Harte is lining up 2005 'Footballer of the Year' Stephen O'Neill to join his Tyrone backroom team.

The Irish News reports that O'Neill - who won minor, U-21 and senior All-Ireland medals during his illustrious career - is being touted as a replacement for Gavin Devlin in Harte's set-up.

A school teacher based in Killyclogher, O'Neill continues to line out for his club Clann na Gael.

His former county teammate Enda McGinley is also being linked as a replacement to Devlin who is reportedly set to leave his position as assistant manager.
