Leicester chairman Mandaric rules out Holloway

Ian Holloway is not about to leave Plymouth Argyle to become the new Leicester manager, according to Foxes owner Milan Mandaric.

Speculation on Monday suggested Mandaric had made an attractive offer to Holloway, who has guided the Pilgrims to seventh spot in the Championship this season.

The Serbian business tycoon has arrived back in the UK from a trip to California in a bid to have a new boss in place at the Walkers Stadium before Saturday's trip to Bristol City.

But he has denied any approach to Argyle over Holloway, telling the Plymouth Evening Herald: "There is no truth in the rumour. I haven't contacted Plymouth and he hasn't been in my thoughts about getting the job."

Home Park chairman Paul Stapleton added: "There is no truth it. I spoke to Ian at lunchtime today about loan transfers and contract talks for other players."
