Former Manchester City and QPR boss Mark Hughes is being linked with Leicester City.

The Mail on Sunday says Hughes and Celtic's Neil Lennon are the frontrunners to take over at Leicester City as the club's Thai owners ponder the future of current boss Nigel Pearson.

Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha is counting the cost of Leicester's defeat in the Championship semi-final against Watford, having made a loss of £30million.

Pearson will get the chance to outline his plans to win promotion while cutting costs.
