The manager was under pressure at the end of last season but kept hold of his job.

It is understood Chris Davies, Glen Driscoll, and Kolo Toure will also join Leicester as part of Rodgers' backroom staff.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph's John Percy has reported that the Foxes made their approach for former Liverpool manager Rodgers - who has been linked with a number of top flight jobs since moving north of the border - on Monday, with talks progressing but not yet complete.

The 46-year-old is poised to leave Celtic now and move to the King Power Stadium.

Rodgers built his reputation as a coach at Chelsea before moving to Watford and then Reading as manager.

PDP winner in presidential polls in Ebonyi
He urged INEC to re-conduct the elections as the results did not reflect wishes of the electorate in the state. The PDP rejected the results at a press briefing it convened on Monday at its national headquarters in Abuja.

Now sitting 13th in the Premier League table, Puel was undone by a combination of poor home results and a struggle to convince both fans and established players to convert from the club's counter-attacking style of football to his slower, more possession-based approach.

Former Rangers defender David Weir has weighed in with his opinion on the latest Brendan Rodgers rumours.

Rodgers has won two league titles, three Scottish League Cups and two Scottish Cups since arriving at Parkhead in the summer of 2016.

Neil Lennon coming back in will steady the ship somewhat but again it's not ideal going into the final third of the season.
