Gent coach Michel Preud'homme is being linked with the AC Milan job.

Belgian sources say Preud'homme is under consideration to succeed Leonardo at the end of this season.

Ivan De Witte, the president of Gent, said: "If these rumours become reality, we will not prevent Preud'homme from leaving and improving his career."

Preud'homme enjoyed a glittering career as goalkeeper with Standard Liege, Mechelen and Benfica.
