It is a substitution that Singapore football fans will relish: As V. Sundramoorthy vacates the LionsXII coaching post, Fandi Ahmad has been lined up to take charge when the team defend their Malaysian Super League (MSL) title next season.

A source told The Straits Times that the Football Association of Singapore's (FAS) council members will be meeting Fandi over the next few days to work out a deal.

It added: "The FAS is keen to bring Fandi back. He is still highly regarded and his presence will inspire the boys. There is an 80 per cent chance of him leading the team."

Fandi, 51, could not be reached for comment.
