Kean's men even nearly pulled off a double this season as Brunei DPMM
reached the Singapore Cup semi-finals.
Kean has met the mercurial McCourt in recent weeks and Sunday Mirror Sport understands the only thing holding the deal up is that DPMM
already have their quota of five 'imported' players.
He hit the ground running and helped clinch the title on the final day of the season last Saturday as DPMM
beat Balestier Khalsa 4-0.
Striker Roy O'Donovan is also likely to join up with his former Cork colleague O'Callaghan, having also most recently played for DPMM
, while City winger Liam Kearney is currently with the Malaysian club as a 'temporary fitness trainer'.
BY ROYAL APPOINTMENT Kean was happy to accept the Crown Prince's offer and now works in Brunei's impressive stadium (inset) with DPMM
are in Singapore's S-League and fair play also seems to be foreign to them.
Kean, who was sacked by Blackburn in September 2012, has reinvented himself in the Singapore League as boss of Brunei DPMM
- and was also handed the role of managing the Brunei national team last October.
O'Donovan and his old Cork team-mate Joe Gamble are going for a treble with DPMM
, who are managed by former Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean.
As boss of table-topping Brunei DPMM
, Kean is the toast of the sultanate's 400,000 population.
