Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has agreed to become Leicester City’s new manager.

Rodgers is currently in Leicester after telling the Celtic board on Monday of his desire to leave.

Rodgers was spotted at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday before completing a move to Leicester.

Leicester moved quickly for Rodgers after sacking Claude Puel following their 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace and he could be unveiled prior to Tuesday’s home game with Brighton.

Rodgers has been in charge at Parkhead since 2016 and led Celtic to the title twice, while they are currently eight points clear of second-placed Rangers and on course for a third successive domestic treble.

He will become Leicester’s third permanent manager since they sacked title-winning boss Claudio Ranieri in February 2017.

Celtic are in talks with former manager Neil Lennon over returning to Celtic Park as interim boss.
