Blackpool already face a battle to keep hold of new manager Paul Ince.

The Mirror says Blackpool are facing their FIFTH managerial change of the season after it emerged that Ince is a shock candidate for the job at struggling Leicester City.

Former Manchester United captain Ince has been in charge for just 45 DAYS at Bloomfield Road, after succeeding Michael Appleton, who himself replaced Ian Holloway, who started the campaign in charge of the Championship club.

Steve Thompson twice held the fort as caretaker boss before Ince's arrival in February.

Leicester are understood to be regretting not moving for Ince before he went to Blackpool and believe he can get them into the play-offs despite their poor current form and difficult run-in.
