Former Down All-Ireland winning manager Pete McGrath has indicated that talks between himself and the Louth County Board over their vacant senior manager's job are possible.
And while the 64-year-old refused to confirm his interest in the role, he ruled nothing out.
“At this stage, I would be sitting tight,” he said.
“If contact was made and I felt there was an opportunity to discuss, then I would do that ok, but I wouldn’t be saying anymore at this stage.”
McGrath was courted for the job prior to Eamonn McEneaney's appointment ahead of the 2006 campaign, having previously led Cooley Kickhams to a Louth Senior Championship final.
Last month, he departed the Fermanagh hotseat in acrimonious circumstances after the players indicated their desire for a managerial change.
Despite this, an appointment of McGrath's calibre would be a major coup.
