David Drumm's extradition hearing has been re-scheduled to this Thursday.

The ex Anglo Irish Bank boss was due to appear before a court in Boston yesterday - but the hearing was postponed due to a snow storm that shut down government buildings in the city.

Lawyers for the former Anglo Boss had been expected to tell the court he is no longer fighting his extradition from the United States.

The action could see him back on Irish soil within a number of weeks.

He faces 33 criminal charges in Ireland relating to transactions carried out while he was in charge of the bank.

Mr Drumm has offered to return to Ireland and adhere to strict bail conditions if the State does not oppose bail while he awaits trial.

He has previously written to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) - and is said to have offered to wear an electronic tag, hand over his passport and sign on in a garda station daily, among several conditions.

He has already been refused bail twice, and remains in custody in Boston

The former bankers told Tom Lyons of The Sunday Business Post in an interview that he wants to deal with the charges against him in Ireland and not the US.

Tom Lyons told Newstalk Breakfast the issue of a fair trial here is a concern for Mr Drumm.
