John Delaney's future with the FAI may be decided later today when the association's board meets amid mounting political pressure over governance concerns.

There are reports the former CEO and current executive vice president has offered his resignation to the board, and a formal decision is likely within the next 24 hours.

It follows controversy over his refusal to answer questions at an Oireachtas committee last week about €100,000 loan he gave the organisation in 2017.

In a statement last night, the FAI insisted it is taking "many urgent steps" to address the governance and financial issues.
