The Irish FA are on the verge of agreeing the biggest ever sponsorship deal for the Northern Ireland team.

The contract with Adidas as the new kit supplier would be worth in excess of £500,000 over four years.

BBC Sport NI understands that the deal is set to start in August next year when the current deal with JJB expires.

Adidas were last in partnership with the Irish Football Association over 25 years ago during the 1982 and 1986 World Cup campaigns.
