David Healy still in Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland plans

Michael O'Neill says unattached trio David Healy, Chris Baird and Pat McCourt will be in contention for a recall to the Northern Ireland squad once they find new clubs.

"Bringing in players who have not had a proper pre-season of training would be unrealistic," said O'Neill.

"I've spoken to all the players and they understand the situation.

"I spoke to David yesterday and I still think he has something to offer," said O'Neill of Northern Ireland's record goal-scorer Healy, who has notched 36 goals in his 94 international appearances.
