Premier League Champions Leicester City have held talks with former England manager Roy Hodgson, with a view to finding a long-term successor to Claudio Ranieri.
The club’s Thai owners are also thought to be giving caretaker manager, Craig Shakespeare, the chance to prove he is capable of taking charge until the end of the season.
This comes after his side’s 3-1 mauling of Liverpool on Monday which lifted them out of the relegation zone.
Hodgson has not been in management since leaving the England job, after their shock exit from last year’s European Championships at the hands of Iceland.

Some Foxes fans are reluctant to welcome Hodgson to the King Power and are backing Shakespeare to take them forward.

Champion swimmer Michael Phelps believes he never competed against a clean international field.
The retired American swimmer wants US legislators to bring about global anti-doping reforms.
He said: ‘I don’t believe I’ve stood up at an international competition and the rest of the field has been clean.’
Phelps testified in front of the US Congress about the urgent need for more testing and tighter rules around doping.
He warned that athletes would soon become ‘disillusioned’ and quit if change didn’t come to sports like his.
