Brendan Rodgers looks set to become the new Leicester City manager.

Celtic have given permission for Rodgers to speak to Leicester.

“Brendan has indicated to the club that this is an opportunity he wishes to investigate further and therefore, very reluctantly, the Club has granted him permission to speak to Leicester City,” read a statement on Celtic’s official website.

Talks of the move began after Claude Puel was sacked from Leicester following the clubs 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The results of this loss leaves the club 12th in the Premier League.

The Celtic manager is said to move to Leicester along with Chris Davies and Kolo Toure.

Former Celtic and Hibernian manager Neil Lennon is said to take charge of Celtic until the end of the season.

Leicester City have pursued the move in order to make Rodgers their new manager with immediate effect.

Rodgers has had great success with Celtic since 2016, the club has 22 consecutive cup tie victories and it is the first time in thirty years that Celtic lifted the league cup for 3 seasons in a row.
