Leicester chairman Milan Mandaric has denied that Neil Warnock turned down the Foxes manager's job.
But Mandaric told the Leicester Mercury : "He was never offered it. "I have not spoken to him about the job at all.
"In fact, I believe he would be the wrong man for us and made no approach to him at all.
"I have several names in my mind, but also there will be certain priorities and I will work hard to get who I feel is the right man."
